The Paducah Song

If you could see a certain town down south
I'll bet you fifteen cents you'd holler "Shut my mouth!"

I'm not exaggeratin' when I say
There's not a sweeter town in the U.S.A.

I know an awful lot of people claim
It has a funny name. But brother just the same

They can't frown on my home town

Paducah, Paducah
If you wanna you can rhyme it with bazooka
But you can't pooh-pooh Paducah
That's another name for Paradise.

Paducah, Paducah
Just a pretty little city in Kentucky
But to me it rhymes with lucky
When I look into two blue eyes.

Tulip time, they get excited over tulip time But I'm delighted over
julep time Because I happen to love A resident of...

Paducah, Paducah
If you wanna you can rhyme it with bazooka
But you can't pooh-pooh Paducah
That's another name for Paradise.

- Leo Robin, lyrics
- Harry Warren, music
