50 nifty united states.

Just because my kids don't know the states or their capitals...
We're going to sing this song every morning at scripture time.
Don't you love this song??

Fifty Nifty United States from thirteen original colonies;

Fifty Nifty stars in the flag that billows so beautifully in the breeze.
Each individual state contributes a quality that is great.
Each individual state deserves a bow, We salute them now.

Shout 'em, scout 'em, Tell all about 'em,
One by one,til we've given a day to every state in the USA

That song brings back memories...we learned it in elementary school. I've been able to impress "thousands" because I could name all the states in alphabetical order in less than twenty seconds all thanks to that song! My Cub Scouts think it's especially cool. Good luck!
