Verse:
Every state has something, it's rotary club can boast
Of,
Some product that the state produces the most of,
Rhode Island is little, but oh my, it has a product
Anyone would buy.

Copper comes from Arizona
Peaches come from Georgia
Lobsters come from Maine
The wheat fields are the
Sweet fields of Nebraska
And Kansas gets bonanzas from the grain
Ol' whiskey comes from ol' Kentucky
Ain't the country lucky?
New Jersey gives us glue
And you come from Rhode Island
And Rhode Island is famous for you
Cotton comes from Louisiana
Gophers from Montana
And spuds from Idaho
They plow land in the cow land of Missouri
Where most beef meant for
Roast beef seems to grow
Grand canyons come from Colorado
Gold comes from Nevada
Divorces also do
And you come from Rhode Island
And little ol' Rhode Island is famous for you
Pencils come from Pennsylvania
Vests from Vest Virginia
Tents from Tentassee
They know mink where they grow mink in Wyomink
A camp chair in New Hampchair - That's for me
Minnows come from Minnowsota
Coats come from Dakota But why
Should you be blue?
For you - you come from Rhode Island
Little ol' Rhode Island is famous for you
You come from Rhode Island,
Ah don't let 'em ride Rhode Island
It's famous for you
