       From campfire ditties:
What did Delaware? She wore her New Jersey.
What does Iowa? She weighs a Washington.
What does Idaho? She hoes her Maryland.
Where has Oregon? She's gone to Oklahoma.
What did Massa-chew? He chewed his Connecti-cud.
Why did Cali-phone ya? He phoned to say "Hawaii"
Where has Oregon? Alaska where she's gone.
  She went to pay her Texas.
What did Mississip? She sipped a Mini-soda.
How did Wiscon-sin? She stole a New-brass-key,
Too bad that Arkan-saw, and so did Tenna-see.
  It made poor Flori-die, you see, she died in Missouri.
