Music and lyrics copyright by Carol Boyd Leon. Released Feb. 15, 2008. (A slightly updated video was released Feb. 23, but this one is the original video.) Piano/vocal/guitar sheet music and downloadable mp3 available at carolboydleon.com By George, It’s Washington Washington, DC, The only place for me to be, The town where history is always in the making, Yes, right here in Washington, DC, Founded in 1790, It is the one and only place That can be called, by George, Yes, George called it the Federal City. No* votes but paddleboats, Cherry blossoms fill the air. Foggy Bottom, Farragut Square And great white columns everywhere. Georgetown, Tenleytown, Metro down to Chinatown, U Street can’t be beat Nor Rock Creek Park and pandas barking at the zoo. Washington Monument, Lots and lots of government, A donkey and an elephant, The White House with the President Four years or even eight. Yes, Washington is my town. No one better put it down. DC, you’re for me, Your pools reflect our history and dreams. Washington, DC, The only place for me to be, The town where history is always in the making, Yes, right here in Washington, DC, The nation’s capital city, It is the one and only place That can be called, by George, Yes, George called it not Washington But that’s its name With cherry trees and apple pie, Red
