IRVING BERLIN lyrics - There's Something Nice About The South

"There's Something Nice About The South"

I've been a traveling chap
Traveled all over the map
From London to Jamaica
Where they make the ginger snap
I've seen America through
Right down to Kalamazoo
And talking 'bout America
Let me say to you

There's something nice about the South
A paradise is 'way down South
It seems that nowadays
They love to sing it's praise
A song of Dixie lingers in ev'ry singer's mouth
There's something sweet about their ways
The girls you meet are oh! so diff'rent
Tennessee, Florida, Alabam'
Fav'rite children of Uncle Sam
There's something nice about the South
