Hannibal, Hannibal,

Hannibal, Missouri

Hannibal, Hannibal.

The only place to be

Hannibal, Hannibal,

Never in a hurry.

Hannibal Hannibal 

The only place for me.

Everybody get on board it's time to take a trip.

We're gonna take a little ride down the Mississip'.

To a place that's just beyond the Mason-dixon line.

And when we get to Hannibal we'll all be feelin' fine


It's not New York City where the buildings touch the sky

It's not like Rome or Paris where that are pleasing to the eye

It's a little one horse town as you will plainly see

but Hannibal Missouri is the only place for me
