Morris and his wife Ester went to the state fair every year.

Every year, Morris would say : "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter.

Esther always replied : "I know, Morris but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

A few years later, Esher and Morris went to the fair.
Morris said :" Esther, I am 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter now, I might never get another chance."

Esther replied : " Morris, that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple.
He said : "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet the entire ride and not say a word, I won't charge you!
But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars."

Morris and Esther agreed...and up they went.

The pilot di all kinds of fancy maneuvers but not a word was heard.

He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word.

When they landed, the pilot turned and said : By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out but you didn't. I'm impressed."

Esther replied : "Well, I was going to say something when Morris fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars.

Tune: Turkey in the Straw

Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana;
And Columbus is the capital of Ohio
There's Montgomery, Alabama south of Helena, Montana
Then there's Denver, Colorado under Boise, Idaho.

Texas has Austin, then we go north toMassachusetts,
Boston; and Albany, New YorkTallahassee,
Florida; and Washington, D.C.
Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Nashville, Tennessee
(Elvis used to hang out there a lot, ya know)

Trenton's in New Jersey north of Jefferson, Missouri
You got Richmond in Virginia, South Dakota has Pierre
Harrisburg's in Pennsylvania and Augusta's up in Maine
And here is Providence, Rhode Island next to Dover, Delaware.

Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt to
Montpelier which is up in Vermont
Hartford's in Connecticut, so pretty in the fall
And Kansas has Topeka, Minnesota has St. Paul

Juneau's in Alaska and there's Lincoln in Nebraska
And it's Raleigh out in North Carolina
And then there's Madison, Wisconsin and Olympia in Washington
Phoenix, Arizona and Lansing, Michigan

Here's Honolulu, Hawaii's a joy
Jackson, Mississippi and Springfield, Illinois
South Carolina with Columbia down the way
And Annapolis in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay
(They have wonderful clam chowder.)

Cheyenne is in Wyoming and perhaps you make your home in
Salt Lake City out in Utah where the buffalo roam
Atlanta's down in Georgia and there's Bismarck, North Dakota
And you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home.

Salem in Oregon, from there we join
Little Rock in Arkansas, Iowa's got Des Moines
Sacramento, California; Oklahoma and its city
Charleston, West Virginia and Nevada, Carson City.

That's all the capitals there are!
