I seem to remember a song that you may be seeking entitled "Poor Little Rhode Island." The lyrics begin with "Poor Little Rhode Island, the smallest of the 48...," but I can't remember any of the rest of the lyrics. A Google search did not help, but perhaps knowing the exact title will help you find it. If your composer names' information is correct, the writers would be Sammy Kahn and JULE STYNE (not Stein). Perhaps another member knows the complete lyrics. Good luck!
