The Capital City
Cherry blossoms fallin’
Sunny Springtime callin’
The Red Line, Yellow Line, Blue Line
It’s all fine for movin’ me out

Chinatown is thumpin’
Sidewalk jazz is pumpin’
H Street, I Street, Our brothers meet
The Archway brings us around

A politician’s jokin’
The interns are smokin’
There’s parties rocking Embassy Row
Fireworks are poppin’ (The cops aren’t stoppin’)
Georgetown is hoppin’

There’s one place you’ve got to go
It’s the Capital City
The Capital City

Potomac heat inspires
Competition’s higher
Pentagon, Arlington, Shirlington
Whoa, who’s that walkin’ her dog ! (look who’s walkin’ her dog !)


Union Station’s flowin’
Trains comin’ and goin’
To New York, Baltimore, North Shore
But AMTRAK’s bringing you back
