"Washington oh Washington"  




  Washington oh Washington how sweet the sound to me,


It reminds me of my childhood life


And your streets I walked so free.


I walked them in the brightest days


And the darkest of the nights,


And I wouldn’t change a single thing,


Everything for me was right,


Standing on your water front,


Watching boats go by


Listening to the ole sea birds


As they circle in the sky.


Standing at the station


To watch that big ole train come in.


Its bringing in the circus,


Its that time of year again.


Little hearts are filled with laughter,


As they parade across the town.


Heading north on seventeen


To the old county fair grounds.


To sit up their big ferris wheel


And that musical merry go round,


Yes those were the good old days


When the circus came to town


Washington oh Washington how sweet the sound to me.


And reminds me of those good ole days


Is pure sweet joy to me.
