Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana
And Columbus is the capital of Ohio
There's Montgomery, Alabama, south of Helena, Montana
Then there's Denver, Colorado, under Boise, Idaho.
Texas has Austin, then we go north
To Massachusetts' Boston, and Albany, New York
Tallahassee, Florida, and Washington, D.C.

You've got Richmond in Virginia; South Dakota has Pierre

And here is Providence, Rhode Island, next to Dover, Delaware.
Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt
To Montpelier, which is up in Vermont

And Kansas has Topeka; Minnesota has St Paul.

And it's Raleigh out in North Carolina and then
There's Madison, Wisconsin, and Olympia in Washington
Phoenix, Arizona, and Lansing, Michigan.
Here's Honolulu; Hawaii's a joy

And Annapolis in Maryland on Chesapeake Bay.
They have wonderful clam chowder.
Cheyenne is in Wyomin' and perhaps you make your home in
Salt Lake City out in Utah, where the Buffalo roam

And you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home.

Little Rock in Arkansas; Iowa's got Des Moines

Charleston, West Virginia, and Nevada, Carson City.
That's all the capitals there are!
Do you know
The names of the US residents
Who then became the Presidents
And got a view from the White House loo
Of Pennsylvania Avenue?
George Washington was the first, you see
He once chopped down a cherry tree
President number two would be
John Adams and then number three
Tom Jefferson stayed up to write
The Declaration late at night
So he and his wife had a great big fight
And she made him sleep on the couch all night
James Madison never had a son
And he fought the War of 1812
James Monroe's colossal nose
Was bigger than Pinocchio's
John Quincy Adams was number six
And it's Andrew Jackson's butt he kicks
So Jackson learns to play politics
Next time he's the one that the country picks
Martin Van Buren number eight
For one term shot as Chief of State
William Harrison, how do you praise?
That guy was dead in thirty days!
John Tyler he liked country folk
And after him came President Polk
Zachary Taylor liked to smoke
His breath killed friends whenever he spoke
1850, really nifty
Millard Fillmore's in
Young and fierce was Franklin Pierce
The man without a chin
Follows next a period spanning
Four long years with James Buchanan
Then the South start shooting cannon
And we've got a Civil War
A war down south in Dixie!
Up to bat comes old Abe Lincoln
There's a guy who's really thinking
Kept the United States from shrinking
Saved the ship of state from sinking
Andrew Johnson's next, he had some slight defects
Congress each would impeach
And so the country now elects
Ulysses Simpson Grant, who would scream and rave and rant
While drinking whiskey, although risky
'Cause he'd spill it on his pants
It's 1877, and the democrats would gloat
But they're all amazed when Rutherford Hayes
Wins by just one vote
James Garfield, someone really hated
'Cause he was assassinated
Chester Arthur gets instated
Four years later he was traded
For Grover Cleveland, really fat
Elected twice as a democrat
Then Benjamin Harrison, after that
It's William McKinley up to bat
Teddy Roosevelt charged up San Juan Hill
And President Taft he got the bill
In 1913 Woodrow Wiiilllllllson...
Takes us into World War I
Warren Harding, next in line
It's Calvin Coolidge, he does fine
And then in 1929
The market crashes and we find
It's Herbert Hoover's big debut
He gets the blame, and loses to
Franklin Roosevelt, President who
Helped us win in World War II
Harry Truman, weird little human
Serves two terms and when he's done
It's Eisenhower who's got the power
From '53 to '61
John Kennedy had Camelot
Then Lyndon Johnson took his spot
Richard Nixon, he gets caught
And Gerald Ford fell down a lot
Jimmy Carter liked camping trips
And Ronald Reagan's speeches' scripts
All came from famous movie clips
And President Bush said "read my lips"
Now in Washington D.C
That's democrats and the G.O.P
But the ones in charge are plain to see
The Clintons, Bill and Hillary
The next President to lead the way
Well, it just might be yourself one day
Then the press will distort everything you say
So jump in your plane and fly away
