I've a pretty Senorita waiting for me
Down in old Mexico.
If you're ever in Alaska stop and see
My cute little Eskimo.

Oh my sweet Fraeulien down in Berlin town
Makes my heart start to yearn.
And my China doll down in old Hong Kong
Waits for my return.

Rick Nelson's, "Travelin' Man"
The Lyrics:
Pretty Polynesian baby over the sea,
I remember the night
When we walked in the sands of the Waikiki
And I held you oh so tight.
Makes reference to Waikiki Beach, Hawaii.

Rick Nelson's, "Waitin' In School"
The Lyrics:
Well, it's a-one, two, a-pull off my shoes
Three, four, get out on the floor
Five, six, come get your kicks
Down on the corner of Lincoln and a-Forty-six
May refer to the corner of Lincoln Avenue and North Avenue 46 in the city of Los Angeles, California, USA. At the time the song was recorded in 1958, its authors - Johnny and Dorsey Burnette, as well as Ricky himself lived in Los Angeles. There is no establishment of particular importance located at this address these days, so the place may have been chosen randomly from the map just to fit the lyrics. Another possible, but less likely reference may be to a similar location in the city of San Francisco, California - a corner of Lincoln Way and 46th Avenue. However, again, there is nothing remarkable located there these days, just a part of a residential area bordering the Golden Gate Park.
