The Lyrics

For the past couple of days, I've had a deficiency of ideas, so I decided to write another parody to get my brain juices flowing, and also to add a little spice to the batch of parodies that get submitted here every day, as I've always done. This time, I decided to write another tribute to my home state of Rhode Island (nicknamed the "Ocean State", as the song title says). Enjoy.
Oooooooooohhhhhhhhhh
Oooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh
Weeeeeeeeeeooooooooooooo
OOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooo
AAAAaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhh
OOOOOoooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh.

I’m always thinkin’ bout it,
I don’t know what I’d do without it,
I love…I really love the Ocean State.

New York just doesn’t matter,
Don’t really care about Nevada,
Hey I’m not ever leaving the Ocean State.

The Ocean State is such a superb state,
It’s a nice place to live,
It’s got a neat culture, too.
It’s the best state in the good old U S of A!

The Ocean State (x4)

The Ocean State (x2)

The Ocean State is the one and only Ocean State in the universe
(If there were) If there were another one, there would be an apocalypse.
But as it is, there’s only one Ocean State, so we’re all fine.
Woo woo woo woo.

Don’t you know you gotta flow, flow, flow, flow; Blackstone River, (1)
Flow, flow; into the Pawtucket Falls.
Won’t you flow, flow, flow, flow; Blackstone River,
Flow, flow; into the Pawtucket Falls?
Cherrystones, littlenecks, (2)
Comin’ from the island of Aquidneck.(3)
Cherrystones, littlenecks,
Comin’ from the island of Aquidneck.
Grinders, coffee milk and clam cakes,(4)
Some of the best foods that this state makes.
Grinders, coffee milk and clam cakes,
Some of the best foods that this state makes.
Can’t you see I love the Ocean State?
Yessiree, I love the Ocean State.
Can’t you see I love the Ocean State?
Yessiree, I love the Ocean State.
Can’t you see I love the Ocean State?
Yessiree, I love the Ocean State…

Cultural Notes:

1- A river that flows through Massachusetts & Rhode Island, whose mouth is at the Pawtucket Falls.
2- Different names for quahogs, a type of clam native to Rhode Island.
3-Largest island in the Narraganset Bay. Actually, quahogs come from all over the Rhode Island coast, but I put this in because it rhymed nicely.
4-Grinder is another name for a submarine sandwich; coffee milk is coffee-flavored milk, NOT milk with your coffee (even ask ChuckyG about it); and clam cakes are fried balls of dough with bits of clam mixed in.
