    I know one but the states aren't in alphabetical order. It's an animaniacs song. Here are the lyrics: (I've memorized it lol.)

    Baton Rouge Louisianna, Indianpolis Indiana,

    and Columbus is the capital of O-hi-o.

    There's Montgomery Alabama,

    south of Helena Montana

    then there's Denver Colorado,

    and Boise Idaho.

    Texas has Austin

    then we go north,

    to Massachusetts Boston

    and Albany New York.

    Tallahassee Florida

    and Washington D.C.,

    Sante Fe New Mexico and Nashville Tennessee.

    Elvis used to hang out there a lot, you know.

    Trenton's in New Jersey north of Jefferson Missouri,

    You got Richmond in Virginia,

    South Dakota has Pierre,

    Harrisburg's in Pennsylvania and Augusta's up in Maine,

    and here is Providence Rhode Island next to Dover Deleware.

    Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunte,

    to Montpelier, which is up in Vermont,

    Hartford's in Connecticut so pretty in the fall,

    and Kansas has Topeka

    Minnesota has St. Paul.

    Juneau's in Alaska and there's Lincoln in Nebraska

    and it's Raleigh out in North Carolina, and then,

    there's Madison Wisconsin and Olympia in Washington,

    Pheonix Arizona

    and Lansing Michigan.

    Here's Honolulu, Hawaii's a joy

    Jackson Mississip-pi

    and Springfield Illinois,

    South Carolina with Columbia down the Way,

    and Annapolis in Maryland on Chesapeake Bay,

    They have wonderful clam chowder.

    Cheyenne is in Wyoming and perhaps you make your home in

    Salt Lake City out in Utah where the buffalo roam.

    Atlanta's down in Georgia and there's Bismark North Dakota,

    and you can live in Frankfurt in your own Kentucky home.

    Sa-lem, in Oregon, from there we join,

    Little Rock in Arkansas,

    Iowa's got Des Moines

    Sacramento California,

    Oklahoma and it's City,

    Charleston West Virginia

    and Nevada Carson City.

    That's all the capitals, there are!

    When I was in elementary school, we learned the "Rap of the States." It lists all the states and their capitals in alphabetical order. I breaks them up into four sections with a little chorus to be easier to remember. Many years later and I can still remember the first verse, so that has to be a good sign.

    Here are the lyrics: http://www.morrison.k12.ok.us/~tah/rap_of_the_stat...

    And here's the music:

    Hope this helps! Good luck!
