The Lyrics

Does anyone else find the melodies similar?
Feel like going to Massachusetts?
You've got the urge to find your way back home
Then you must go to Massachusetts
You left your girlfriend standing all alone

You'll have to leave from San Francisco
Love-ins not what they're cracked up to be
Lights are out in Massachusetts
Must bring a lantern if you want to see

Ride across the nation
Seat absorbs vibration
Wheels are in motion

Electric generation
No failure explanation
Total commotion
Next to the ocean

Talk of your life in Massachusetts
Be sure to mention people you have seen
Lights come on in Massachusetts
That is one place I know you have been

When you get to Massachusetts
You will fall in love with her again
The singer of "Massachusetts" talks of hitching a ride to San Francisco. Maybe he heard Scott McKenzie's song and decided to go. Now he's coming home.
