The Lyrics

We're gonna greet non-Tarheel's the same
If you happen to wonder in
And not have
A good 'ol North Carolinian name.

We can be tough as hell
'Cause we're borned with a 'tude
So you better not come here
Talking tough, or doing anything we think rude.

We can be as cold
As a recent divorcee
And we're so by-God stubborn
When a Yankee comes in by land or sea

Or we might be as mad as a salesman
Who hasn't sold anything in a year
If you come in spouting off about Jesse Helms
Then we'll be sure to kick you in your rear.

But we might just forgive you, what the heck
All you really have to do is purchase a NASCAR ticket
Drink, pick your nose-scream loudly
That it really would be nice to see a wreck.

You really ought to give North Carolina a try
Even though we won't mention it again
You can come as long as you ain't a Yankee
Otherwise, you're a fool if you don't drop on in.
