A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
The Danube flows there—mountains rise.
The villages—rich with surprise.
Vienna—where the music soars—
And when it rains, it really pours.
It really doesn’t want to claim
That Hitler guy of darkest fame.
But there are others—Sigmund Freud,
Who’s kept psychiatrists employed.
And Mozart—Strauss (those music kings)—
And dukes and others—queens and things.
Oh, Austria has been a place
That elevates the human race!
