The Lyrics

Well we’re living here in Florida
And we’ve boarded all our big windows up
Yes we’ve just survived a Hurricane
Nine trailer parks
Still have cocaine
Our Grandfathers fought the Second World War
Spend their weekends on Daytona’s shore
Our Grandmothers from the USO
They’re on the roads
Driving too slow
And we’re living here in Florida.
We’re a couple generations down
And it seems like half the men are gay.
(hey hey hey oh-oh-oh)
Well we’re waiting here in Florida
For the Disney world that we never found
Oh the promises our futures gave
If we wore shoes
If we would shave
So our graduations hang on the wall
Though they never really helped us at all
No they never taught us what was real
Call center jobs, wait staff …or steal.
And we’re waiting here in Florida.
But the corporations bought up the grounds
And the lime tree finally blew away
Every child had a pretty good shot
To get a residential five by four lot
But something happened on the way to that place
They put a brand new Quizno’s up in that space
Well I’m living here in Florida
And it’s nice to get a good tan down
But I won’t be laying out today

There goes the neighborhood -- both Florida, and AmIRight.... (j/k!)
