crap you should know

Wakko's America, as sung by Wakko on Animaniacs (to the tune of Turkey in the Straw).

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.,
Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Elvis used to hang out there a lot, ya' know?

Trenton's in New Jersey north of Jefferson, Missouri
you've got Richmond in Virginia, South Dakota has Pierre
Harrisburg's in Pennsylvania and Augusta's up in Maine,
and here is Providence, Rhode Island, next to Dover, Delaware.

Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt,
to Montpelier, which is up in Vermont
Hartford's in Connecticut, so pretty in the fall,
and Kansas has Topeka, Minnesota has St. Paul.

Juneau's in Alaska and there's Lincoln in Nebraska,
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,
Jackson, Mississippi, and Springfield, Illinois
South Carolina with Columbia down the way,
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
Atlanta's down in Georgia, and there's Bismarck, North Dakota
and you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home.

Salem in Oregon, from there we join,
Little Rock in Arkansas, Iowa's got Des Moines
Sacramento, California, Oklahoma, and its city,
Charleston, West Virginia and Nevada, Carson City.

That's all the capitals there are.

Oooh, the capitals song! When my brother was in 4th grade, we actually used this song to help him learn the capitals. It was fun.

Also fun, and slightly related, I got to see Yakko's voice actor sing the Countries of the World song, live. Very, very awesome fun.

I am jealous, perhaps more than it warrants.

No, you're about as jealous as it warrants. It was seriously awesome.

The best part was it happened *twice*.
