Gonna Get Frantic
Teaching the Southeast United States and their Capitals
Joe Crone


This song is available on Joe Crone's Geometry Park.

Chorus:
New England and Mid Atlantic,
We gonna get silly, and we’re gonna get frantic.
Mid Atlantic and New England,
We gonna bust the capitals to a record spin.

Let's start in a place that we call New England,
A few states are located in this region.
The Northeast side of the United States,
Is where this rap is gonna infiltrate.

The first State that we’re gonna learn today,
Is the Eastern most State in the USA.
Maine’s where you go if you want some lobster,
The capital here is called Augusta.

And next to that, is New Hampshire,
Or the Granite State: if you’d prefer.
Now get on the mic and hit record,
We gonna rock the capital city of Concord.

The Green Mountain State is called Vermont,
The capital Montpelier is what I want.
Now it would be a big mistake,
If you didn’t put their maple syrup on pancakes.

Now if you want old school, let me suggest,
Princeton or Harvard in Massachusetts.
With schools so big that you can get lost in,
By the way the capital is called Boston.

Independence and Connecticut
The first to be free, let’s not forget.
That’s why it's called the Constitution State
Hartford’s the capital – there’s no debate.
The smallest one? Let me think; just wait.
I know its known as the Ocean State.
The capital is Providence, oh now we stylin’
The smallest State is called Rhode Island.

Chorus:
New England and Mid Atlantic,
We gonna get silly, and we’re gonna get frantic.
Mid Atlantic and New England,
We gonna bust the capitals to a record spin.

My rhyme is large and my rhyme is gigantic.
My rhyme is gonna talk about the Mid Atlantic
There’s five States here that you gotta know,
So pay attention now cause here we go!

New York’s where you want to be
If you wanna go make the big money.
The Empire State is the one for me
Along with the capital, Albany.

And next is the State of New Jersey.
It’s got the highest population density.
There’s something that I’d like to mention,
The capital city here is called Trenton.

Now, Pennsylvania is doin’ well.
Is the State where they keep the Liberty Bell.
It’s a place where they make lot of steel,
Harrisburg’s the capital, keepin’ it real!

The State that we cannot compare,
Is the Diamond State of Delaware.
My 'Hommies' all call it the small wonder
The capital city is called Dover

The last State of this rap is Maryland
The city of Annapolis is within.
So get into a boat and catch some wind
Cuz we’re gonna cast off and go sailing.

Chorus:
New England and Mid Atlantic,
We gonna get silly, and we’re gonna get frantic.
Mid Atlantic and New England,
We gonna bust the capitals to a record spin.
