If you motor to DC Northwest
Travel my way, take the highway that’s the best
take a hike down Rockville Pike

It winds from Jones Bridge to Middle Lane
More than seven and a half miles all the way
Take a hike on Rockville Pike

Well it crosses Marinelli
Goes right by the BP
Hey! There’s Bagel City lookin’ mighty pretty
You see Cedar and Bellvue
Strathmore Avenue
Nicholson and Montrose
Don’t forget Old Georgetown
Halpine, Wooten, Rockville Metro Station

Won’t you get hip to this timely tip:
when you take that Chevy Chase/Bethesda trip
take a hike down Rockville Pike

So great. Reminds me of my time living there. Though I live far away now, I love the local references in the show and the jingles. Takes me back to a simpler time.
