“Show Me” – My Fair Lady
Music: Frederick Loewe Lyrics: Alan Jay Lerner
Missouri, nicknamed the Show Me State, was admitted into the union on this day in 1821. While this musical is set across the pond from the U.S., this number could be the Show Me State’s theme song. Flower girl-turned-respectable-lady Eliza Doolittle sings this fervent demand to her suitor Freddy in the second act, asking him to show his feelings rather than simply voice them.
