MINNESOTA (to the tune of "Oklahoma")
From the Prairie Home Companion Songbook

Neesota vere da snoose flies ticker dan da snow
Vere behind each veed you find a Svede
And da vinter's forty-two below (dat's cold)

By yimminy da fish yump right into your boat
And mosquitos grow as big as crows
From Mankato vay up to Dulut!

You can have your Vermonts and your Maines
Ve get ten-tousand lakes ven it rains

If you want re-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ec-
Reation take your ne-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-ext
Vacation to da beautiful land, Minnesota,
Minnesota... ya sure.

[transcribed phonetically. remember to say your o's really really round and roll your r's a tiny bit. : ) ]
