Educational Spanish rap/chant from middle school. How does it go?

In 7th grade (1990-ish) Spanish class, in Dallas, TX, we "memorized" the capitols of the countries in Central (and maybe South) America, using a cheesy yet hypnotic rap/chant that our teacher played from a cassette tape. Can someone tell me how it went? I only remember the very beginning.

It started with Mexico, and listed them in some unknown-to-me order, adding and repeating new one each time, followed by a drum roll (the drum roll is more or less accurate in the following transposition). For example, what I remember goes like this:
Mexico D.F., Mexico...Mexico D.F., Mexico. (bada-bada-bada-bada-bada-bada-CHING)
Mexico D.F., Mexico...Guatemala, Guatemala...Guatemala, Guatemala.
Mexico D.F., Mexico...Guatemala, Guatemala...Tegucigalpa, Honduras...Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Mexico D.F., Mexico...Guatemala, Guatemala...Tegucigalpa, Honduras...Ciudad de Panama, Panama...Ciudad de Panama, Panama.
It is absolutely killing me that I can't remember the rest, nor figure out in what order these are being added to the first part. Please help!
