Rhode Island Is Famous For You  performed by  Blossom Dearie  (1960)
Composed by Schwartz-Dietz
Arranged by Blossom Dearie
From: USA
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile] on Sunday 3rd November 2002

A cute and amusing song from the 1948 musical, 'Inside USA', this song is perfect for Ms. Dearie's adorable voice. She swings thru a state-by-state list, hilighting what each state is famous for, at first on a factual basis, then going off in a whimsical frenzy with such phrases as, "Pencils, come from Pencil-vania, vests from Vest Virginia, and tents from Tent-essee, they know mink where they grow mink, in Wyomink, a camp chair in New Hampchair, that's for me!" I'm amazed that the Farelly Brothers haven't gotten this one to use in one of their films yet!

from Blossom Dearie, Soubrette, Sings Hit Broadway Songs (Verve MGV 2133)
available on CD - Blossom Dearie - Verve Jazz Masters 51 (Verve/Polygram 529906)

Other Versions: Michael Feinstein also included this song in a live performance recording.
