The Lyrics

I'm rusty. This just kind of came to me as an idea from Mike.I know it's not one of my best but I had fun writing it so I figured I'd post it anyway. Hope you enjoy the tribute to all things third grade and green macintosh!
15 minutes and my fam'ly is draggin'
To haul all this gear to our covered wagon
Don't know why my little Susie is lookin so weird
Lookin like another case of cholera here
I ain't hirin' Squanto, nay...
It's my choice so I'll ford and pray

I ain't settlin' we got miles to go.
This ain't no greenhorn here. And our pace sure ain't slow .
Won't tire of shootin these deer or those buffalo.
Oh we are gonna get west you know.
I ain't settlin' until I set foot in Oregon.

With some dead oxen and a typhoid case
Gonna cut back the food and set a grueling pace.
Shopping at the Fort don't they know how it feels?
Trade my youngest son for your wagon wheels...
Drivin' on's what I'm gonna do
Clear the trail I'm comin' through!

I ain't settlin' I'll follow the hawks.
An edu ma ca tion from the trail of hard knocks.
Raft the Columbia now? Oh God don't hit rocks!
Please mammy keep fightin' off that pox
I ain't settlin' until I set foot in Oregon.

I ain't settlin' We got miles to go.
This ain't no greenhorn here. And our pace sure ain't slow .
Won't tire of shootin these deer or those buffalo.
Oh we are gonna get west you knooooooooooooooooooooooow.
I ain't settlin' we're hittin' the end
Lost my en'tahr fam'ly, but I made a new friend
This crazy prospector Pete, comes through here again
I see it's Oregon round the Bend...
I ain't settlin' no, no, no, no, no, no.

"Oregon round the Bend." Bad pun. Good parody.
