Well, kids, there it is! Capital City!
There’s a swingin’ town I know called… Capital City.
People stop and scream hello in… Capital City.
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.
Look, it’s Tony Bennett!
Hey, good to see you.
It’s against the law to frown in… Capital City.
You’ll caper 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 Capital City, my home sweet, yeah!
Capital City, that happy-tal city,
It’s Capital City,
My home sweet swingin’ home!
Capital City! Yeah!
