WHAT'S IN A NAME?


I'm lookin' back at old Luckenbach --
The sole-starred ran me out on a rail,

We headed for a dance, by way of Little Rock,
In an "ark and saw" the vice president quail,

Should Jersey and York be invigorated? --
A fifteen mile limit in Rapid City?

Tell me, really, "Is Green Bay that verdant?"
Hari-kari by Yellowknife? -- what a pity,

I'll say, "Boo!" to a bear in old Baraboo --
In Medicine Hat, see me bare-headed,

There's only one state that's inside of another --
That's Arkansas with Kansas imbedded.
