It's a well-known fact -- as concertgoers will acknowledge -- that If you have a lyric which mentions a place the audience there will applaud like chimps on speed when you sing it . . . or (better?) you can change the place name to wherever you are and the audience will applaud like gorillas on P!
Less cynically and more usefully . . . place names are easy rhymes.
Here's a classic Australian song from 1962 written by country singer Geoff Mack
and here's the US version. . .
and of course . . . there's a New Zealand version
a somewhat lame Canadian version
and of course there's this very funny Indian version . . .
and an international version
Better still just write one for yourself, it isn't that hard given how many place names rhyme.
