I recently bumped into the Rhode Island state song. Not sure how long it's been since I heard it, but reading the lyrics brought me nostalgia, so here it goes:


Rhode Island's It for Me
Written by Charlie Hall
Music by Maria Day
Arranged by Kathryn Chester

Chorus
Iíve been to every state we have,
and I think Iím inclined to say
that Rhody stole my heart:
You can keep the forty-nine.

Herring gulls that dot the sky,
blue waves that paint the rocks,
water rich with Neptuneís life,
the boats that line the docks.
I see the lighthouse flickering
to help the sailors see.
Thereís a place for everyone:
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

I love the fresh October days,
the buzz on College Hill,
art that moves an eye to tear,
a jewelers special skill.
Icicles refract the sun,
snow falling gracefully.
Some search for a place thatís warm:
Rhode Islandís It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

The skyline piercing Providence,
the State House dome so rare.
residents who speak their minds;
no longer unaware!
Roger Williams would be proud to see his colony,
so donít sell short this precious port:
Rhode Islandís It for Me!

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;
Rhode Islandís It for Me.

Rhode Island, oh Rhode Island
surrounded by the sea.
Some people roam the earth for home;

Here's a good Rhode Island song, it's a bit off-color, but very funny:

Ha, I don't get it. Maybe it was taken out of context.

Very out of context!
Anybody that likes "Family Guy" humor will enjoy it. The creators of "Family Guy" are from Rhode Island.
