WONDERFUL memories! |
I learned this song in 6th grade and helped me out greatly since then when I had to know all 50 states! I can still recite all 50 states, some 25+ years later and am teaching it to my daughter now. I had NO idea that Ray Charles did this song! Thanks for the site!

Stuck in head man! Stuck in head! |
I thought that the song was awesome. I just learned it a couple months ago and I still have it stuck in my head. It is like a piece of gum in your hair and you can't get it out. Yeh. I am From Wisconsin and when we said the state we have been to we would raise our hands and I almost raised my hand for every state.

when i had heard we were going to sing this song i said i know it by heart.I AM IN THE 5th grade
we sang this song in the third grade over 30 years ago, and i can still resite the states in order but couldn't remember all the lyrics. now i can teach my kid and start a new generation
I learned “Fifty Nifty United States” when I was in grade school. I'm in college now and I could only remember the song up to Georgia. Then I found the song on line; I’ve sang it over and over and over again with my 4 year old cousin and now we can’t get it out of our heads!!! Thanks Ray Charles!!
hi we love fifty nifty |
hey were going to start in 5th grade this year by allyson
This song is great. The first time I sang it I was in music class at school. I didn't know Ray Charles wrote and sang this song. I got payed $2 in fake class money for singing this song w/o the song playing.
my fifth grade class is singing thisfor our graduation, but we're singing 'in our calm objective opinion' instead of whatever was up there but this song is so fun to sing!LOL
The 'Way back' machine - in 1974 |
Way back in '74 I was in 5th grade & learned this song. Very easy to remember if you take it in short sections. My kids knew it by 1st grade & all who were taught, are certainly Proud to know them!
Wish there were more songs to teach lessons in school...I'm sure we'd all remember LOTS more!
my review |
is there different way to teach this song? because i had learned a differnt way to sing fifty niffty. and according to my friend to the left of me she says that her way is better.. but i have to disagree with her.
thank you.. elise and tesha
I sang this song when I was in fifth grade back in 1993, and I can't believe they still sing this song in class! It's an amazing song that has made me remember all the states to this day in order!!
this song is amazing |
this song has a really good tune i think that it could be lisnted to by any one if you think the same email me at
a hopefuly usefull song |
I'm in forth grade, and my music teacher is making 100 forth graders learn and memorize the song in one week! Luckey for me that I arridey learned and memorized half of it in two days, or she'll kill me! I still have to do a lot of stuff, so I hope that learning and memorizing the song like crazy pays off, or I'm red hot mad!
this song is cool |
this song id real cool and i like it i wish i knew it all
