Mention My Name In Sheboygan    (1961)

Mention my name in Sheboygan
It's the greatest little town in the world
Just tell them you're an old friend of mine
And every door in town will have a big welcome sign

So mention my name in Sheboygan
And if you ever get in a jam
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't them where I am

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Paducah
It's the greatest little town in the world
I know a gal there you'll simply adore
She was Miss Paducah back in 1904

So mention my name in Paducah
And if you ever get in a mess
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't give them my address

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Elmira
It's the greatest little town in the world
I told the mayor there that he would go far
I even gave the sheriff an exploding cigar

So mention my name in Elmira
And if they try to put you in jail
Mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't write to me for bail

While the teletypes are talkin' and the sirens roar
I'll be hoppin' on a freighter for a foreign shore

Mention my name in Tacoma
It's the greatest little town in the world
I know the big shots in the City Hall
They even got my picture on the post office wall

So mention my name in Tacoma
And if you ever get in a spat
Just mention my name, I said mention my name
But please don't tell them where I'm at

Please don't tell them where I'm at!
