There's a swingin' town I know called
People stop and scream hello in
It's the kind of place that makes
A bum feel like a king
And it makes a king feel like some
Nutty, cuckoo, super king
It's against the law to frown in
You'll giggle like a stupid clown
When you chance to see
Fourth street and D -- Yeah!
Once you get a whiff of it
You'll never want to roam from
Capitol City, my home sweet -- Yeah!
Capitol City, that happy tall city
It's Capitol City, my home sweet swingin' home!
