The Lyrics

This a tribute to my home state.
By the time I get to Cleveland I am insame
There's pollution in the snow and on the ground
I'll yawn when I pass the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
'Cause there's not much else in town for miles around

By the time I make Columbus I will be bored
Driving through central Ohio really sucks
Too much farmland off the four lane highway
And too many ducks

By the time I make Cincinnati I'll be depressed
I'll pull over and scream loud obscenities
And I'll get the hell out of Ohio
I don't know if I should feel lucky
Because the next state is named Kentucky.

Look at the bright side: You can say the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals are still better than any football team in Kentucky. Of course, nobody drinks Ohio bourbon.
