THE CLEVELAND POLKA

 

Up where the buckeyes tumble down

You’ll find the country’s grandest town

It seems a lady’s kiss means more

Out on Lake Erie’s southern shore

From water’s edge to Waterloo

From Shaker Square to Brookside Zoo

You’ll find the best location in the nation

If you travel down

To good old Cleveland town
