The state of Florida is looking for a new state song.

The old state song for Florida was "Old Folks At Home"

Way down upon de Swanee ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation,
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.

All de world am sad and dreary,
Ebry where I roam,
Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home.

Some people have said this song may be racist. Therefore, the Florida Music Educators Association started "Just Sing, Florida" asking people to vote online. But by the time got over our collective disease, the voting window had closed.

Don't let that stop you however, from adding your suggestions below.

Remember, this is Florida.
