The Lyrics

If you're goin' to Cincinnati,
Be sure to eat a 3 way while you're there
If you're goin' to Cincinnati,
You're gonna feel some humidity there.

For those who come to Cincinnati,
Summer time will be a hot one there.
And across from Cincinnati,
The IRS service center is there.

Everybody there fears
Once every seventeen years.
Cicadas flying.

Twice every generation
There's a wierd sensattion.
Cicadas flying.
Cicadas flying.

For those who come to Cincinnati,
Be sure to eat a 3 way while you're there.
If you come to Cincinnati,
Summer time will be a hot one there.

If you come to Cincinnati,
Summer time will be a love-in there.

Well, I liked it. Did a parody of that ol' hippy tune myself. Good job!

How can you write about Cincinnati and not mention The Gambler? And I don't mean Kenny Rogers.

I think Pete has been punished enough. BTW, did you know that Great American Ball Park and Paul Brown Stadium are located on Pete Rose Way? There was another Cincinnati celebrity who had an alley named after her while Pete received his name on an Ohio River street
