"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 wouldnt 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.
