From Cape Cod light to the Mississip' to San Francisco Bay.
They're talkin' 'bout this famous place,  down Greenwich Village way.
They hootenanny all the time,  with folks from every where,
Come Sunday morning rain or shine,  right in Washington Square.
 
An' so I got my banjo out,  jes' sittin' catchin' dust.
An' painted right across the case, "Greenwich Village or Bust!"
My folks were sad to see me go,  I got no meanin' there.
So I said, "Goodbye,  Kansas,  Mo," And hello Washington Square.
