The Lyrics

The first in a series of dedications to underrated US states...and my personal favourite at the moment...
There is a state that I rate although I've never been there
It has got bison (they're a really big type of cow)
It's kinda square-ish
Right next to Idaho, that's where I wanna go now!

My my my, Wyoming!
Sky sky sky, Wyoming!
I can see Cheyenne up ahead, oh yeah!
Wyoming, there's lotsa space, not many folks there!

Rivers so clear, full of trout you can spear, I'd be happy
Yellowstone Park, must be careful, don't f**k with a bear
At a rodeo
Watching bulls flipping old cowboys right up in the air!

Wy-y-y...yoming!
Rhymes rhymes rhymes with "roaming"
Florida's got sun, New York's "Number one"
But good ol' Wyoming in my heart has hit a home run

(Trumpet solo with waltzing bison)

It's kinda squarish
Not quite Colorado, but where I wanna go now!

Ohio I'll shun, Michigan's no fun
But good ol' Wyoming in my heart has hit a home run!!!

Wowza...as a PROUD Wyoming native, this would most likely rock my Wyoming socks right off...if, that is, I knew the original song. I'm SUCH a loser!!!

DKTOS either, but I'm sure your parody is wonderful. Just curious though, why is Wyoming your new favorite state?
Arwen - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, that is SO weird...=) I forgot to say this...and again...I'm sure that I would love Love LOVE it on the whole if my knowledge of the Tom Jones library were more complete...(I know his version of "Kiss" and part of "It's Not Unusual..." and four words of "What's New Pussycat?" (the fourth being whoa-ooo-whoa-ooo-whoa!)...but I really appreciate the waltzing bison bit...really.

Thanks, Arwen and Ash! Your homework..find a midi clip of the song. Believe me, this is FAR funnier if you KTOS. Ash...Wyoming is my new favourite state, 'cause I just broke up with Oregon..never phoned, never returned my calls...:-)

Oregon is a cheating bastard anyway...

Three 5's from the most politically schizoid state in the Onion - Gassachewzits!

Thanks, Johnny! And don't think for a moment I'm gonna overlook Massa..massa...that New England state! Any place that's named after a sneeze deserves ridicule...

I live in Utah. You can't find a better place to ridicule than that...

Ha! That's great. Nice job. Cute idea, well executed.
Arwen - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
True enough, Ashkicksass...but Spaff has mastered that art...nobody could possibly compare to his Utah themed melodies...

i spent a horrible week in wyoming once...oh wait, it was only a day. it just seemed liked a week...good parody though....5s
Arwen - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
alvin, i'm sorry that your visit wasn't all that you hoped it would be...where in wyoming were you? you CLEARLY weren't anywhere near me...or else you would have been having the time of your life. (i'm the life of any party)

Big downside of Wyoming: home state of the antichrist.

This is my 'pick of the day'! Loved "it's kinda squarish"!

Git along little dogie, this one should've been rounded up. John Barry: Shows what you know. John Ashcroft is from Missouri... oh, you mean Cheney. Ah, he can go...

Thanks everyone for your feedback..especially Merry..Pick of the day? I'm honoured! If anybody has requests for states they want ridiculed, let me know!

Live in Wyoming. The song parody is not too bad, though it doesn't really follow the rhythm all of the time. Still though, it was kinda funny. My favorite part was don't f*** with the bear. That's so true when it comes to Yellowstone. Nice job. = D
