Fifty Nifty United States

Fifty Nifty United States

Words and Music by Ray Charles

Fifty nifty United States from thirteen original colonies,

Fifty nifty stars in the flag that billow so beautifully in the breeze.

          Each individual state contributes a quality that is great.

          Each individual state deserves a bow, we salute them now.

Fifty nifty United States from thirteen original colonies,

          Shout ‘em, scout ‘em, Tell all about ‘em,

          One by one till we’re given a day to every state

                   in the U.S.A.
