lyrics

Let’s start a song, on this side of the Verazzano, get the tune down by the other side, it’ll help pass the time.
And we’ll have a few verses by Jersey, the words and the chords will sound fine.


And the bridge’ll be done before we cross the one that goes over the Delaware Water Gap, onto PA
And who’s to say, how many more songs we’ll have down before Youngstown, that state is so long (so goddamn long).


We could be in Chicago by this time tomorrow, our troubles will stay in New York.
We’ll use slant rhymes and eye rhymes, but I swear to God it’ll work (it’ll work).


When you start the next one, turn left and we’ll follow the river, it gets so damn cold in the North, we’ll shoot riffs back and forth,
And we’ll have two new tunes by St. Louis, who knew we could somehow get lost?


And when we get to Memphis, we’ll have a big dent in a double or triple-length album of traveling songs, still goin strong,
That’s more than we ever wrote in a semester, and that can’t be wrong (that can’t be wrong).


We could be in New Orleans by early next morning, our troubles will stay in New York.
We’ll use slant rhymes and eye rhymes, but I swear to God it’ll work (it’ll work).


And when we get to Houston, we’ll have no more use for sheet music, don’t use it, it’s all muscle memory.
I’ve got one more for you all to learn, so just turn right when we get in sight of the sea.


We’ll at least get to Oakland before we go broke and our troubles will stay in New York.
We’ll use slant rhymes and eye rhymes, but I swear to God we’ll write more in 2 weeks than the last 20 years,
We’ll use slant rhymes and eye rhymes but I swear to God it’ll work (it’ll work).
