Have you ever been struggling with the memorisation of the 50 states of the United States?
Not me. I just want to learn them. But for some of you, the answer may be “yes”. And therefore, here’s a rhyme that can help you memorise them—it works for me! I really love it and I want to share it with you.
Let’s get started!
The 50 States That Rhyme
Melody: Turkey in the Straw
Alabama and Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,
California, Colorado and Connecticut and more;
Delaware, Flordia and Georgia and Hawaii, Idaho,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, so thirty-five to go.
Kansas and Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,
Maryland and Massachusetts, good old Michigan;
Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri and Montana,
Nebraska’s 27 number 28’s Nevada.
Next New Hampshire and New Jersey and way down New Mexico,
There’s New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio;
Oklahoma, Oregon and Pennsylvania now let’s see,
Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee.
Texas and there’s Utah, Vermont, I’m almost through,
To Virginia, and there’s Washington, and West Virginia too;
Could Wisconsin be the last state, or is it forty-nine?
No, Wyoming is the last state in the fifty states that rhyme!
Alright, that’s it! I really hope that’d help you. Feel free to comment below. If you like this post, definitely remember to share it with your friends and we’ll appreciate that a lot!
