The Lyrics

All of these are genuine Uk/US/Canadian towns.
coming from 'No Name' California's tough
those Georgians from 'Santa Claus' say "not enough"
'Skiddy', Kansas, ain't where I reside
'Big Beaver lick', Kentucky, doesn't sound too nice

that Arkansas township thats called 'Toad Suck'
'Dead Horse', Alaska, was just bad enough
when the postman sees it he laughs a bit
much more so at 'Butternuts', and 'Busti'

'cause I don't wanna live in a place called that:
'Kn*b Lick', or 'F*cking' or the 'Isle of Tw*tt'
'Lickey End' was bad enough, but 'Shafter's mad
and I don't wanna live in a place called that

Virginia's got 'Bagdad' and 'Bumpass'
'Kermit' and 'Frogtown' - names that seemed to last
'Wombwell' and 'Grimethorpe' - both near me
unlike Nova Scotia's 'Economy'

'cause I don't wanna live in a place called that:
'Kn*b Lick', or 'F*cking' or the 'Isle of Tw*tt'
'Lickey End' was bad enough, but 'Shafter's mad
and I don't wanna live in a place called that

no I don't wanna live in a place called that:
'Giggleswick', 'Sandwich' or the 'Isle of Tw*tt'
whoever thought of 'Ramsbottom' was a prat
'cause I don't wanna live in a place called that:

Oh if you think 'Wetwang' has a mayor who presents Countdown
or that 'Bushland' in Texas will regret that now
If you wanna live in 'Thong' or in 'Titsey' or in 'Sway'
move out of 'Arp', move out of 'Gay'

'cause I don't wanna live in a place called that:
'Kn*b Lick', or 'F*cking' or the 'Isle of Tw*tt'
'Lickey End' was bad enough, but 'Shafter's mad
and I don't wanna live in a place called that

no I don't wanna live in a place called that:
'Giggleswick', 'Sandwich' or the 'Isle of Tw*tt'
whoever thought of 'Ramsbottom' was a prat
'cause I don't wanna live in a place called that:

Exit 144 on Interstate 75 in northern Tennessee: "Stinking Creek Road." I am not making this up.

Surprise! I pass that road a lot, and you are not making it up, Michael. I often wondered what they were thinking when they named it that.
