Lyrics

Washington DC, our nation's capitol, a federal city
Washington DC, is where the president and the government
Help to make history
So let's explore the city a little more

(All right, now we're gonna find out who really does their
homework!)

They started to build it 1792
It's on the $20 bill, has a bowling alley too
It's a symbol of our nation
Every President's lived there except George Washington
It has 35 bathrooms and an Oval Office
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
It's the WHITE HOUSE

With two shades of marble, it looks kind of funny
'Cause they started to build it and ran out of money
When the Civil War came, it almost didn't get done
It took a hundred long years to add its pyramid top
555 feet seemed like a good place to stop
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
That would be the WASHINGTON MONUMENT

His most famous words are engraved on the walls
It has some spelling mistakes, I count 11 in all
This monument honors our 3rd President
The 26 columns and a smooth surface dome
Were built it to look like his Monticello home
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
I'm gonna have to go with the JEFFERSON MEMORIAL

Washington DC, our nation's capitol, a federal city
Washington DC, is where the president and the government
Help to make history
So let's explore the city a little more

It's the symbol of our great government home
108 windows are in its dome
It's where the Senate and the House of Representatives meet
It has been burnt, rebuilt, extended and restored
The House works in the south wing, and the Senate in the north
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
Sounds like the US CAPITOL to me

It's where the Congress goes when they need research done
It's the largest one of these in the world
29 million books on 530 miles of bookshelves, oh my goodness!
2.7 million recordings, 12 million photographs
4.8 million maps, 57 million manuscripts
That's a lot of stuff!
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
Wow! It's the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

Our 16th President is honored here;
A statue of him sitting in a chair
The Gettysburg Address is carved on the walls
56 steps stand for his age when he died
36 columns stand for the 36 states at the time
Can you guess where I'm talking about?
That would be the LINCOLN MEMORIAL

Washington DC, our nation's capitol, a federal city
Washington DC, is where the president and the government
Help to make history
So let's explore the city a little more
