There are fifty states in the United States, fifty states I’ve counted.
They’re all great states, all over the place from the deserts to the mountains.
I’ll go to Arizona, and Sunny California,
I’ll go and see the mountain tops, in Colorado-oh-oh-oh-oh.
There’s North Carolina and South Carolina and North and South Dakota.
There’s West Virginia and just Virginia and there’s Oklahoma.
There’s Maryland and New Jersey and New York and Pennsylvania,
And Massachusetts and Delaware, Connecticut and Maine–yeah!
I’d like to go to Texas and see the cattle roaming,
And then I’ll roam myself to Wyoming, of course there’s
Hawaiian Islands and just Rhode Island, New Jersey, Indiana,
Georgia and New Hampshire, and Alabama, Louisiana,
Idaho and Iowa, Missouri, and Ohio,
Kansas, and Kentucky, and New Mexico-oh-oh-oh.
They’re all great states, all over the place, but wait – there’ more!
Oregon, and Washington, Wisconsin and Montana
Alaska, and Nebraska, and there’s Utah and Nevada
Michigan and Vermont, and Illinois and Tennessee
And Minnesota, Kentucky and M I double-s I double-S I double-P I … Mississippi!
