The only place to be
Never in a hurry.
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
