The Lyrics

Georgia, Montana, I'd sooner see Havana,
and in San Francisco, better place to be though,
we're stormin the mormons,


a thousand miles from the beach
there's a place called poconos
that's where you don't wanna go,
with time to waste in the fall

you can watch the trees,
and get bit by honeybees
fall down on to your knees,
your epi-pen's in the hall

Georgia, Montana, I'd sooner see Havana,
and then San Francisco, better place to be though,
we're stormin the mormons,
babe I"ll never to take you to the Poconos,
our heater's broke, and our ass is froze,
that's where I'll never go
into the Poconos

it's in south P.A. so people stay away

we'll drive in the car, and we'll not get very far,
state troopers hide in the dark,
so they can check your speed
no pools, no beach no sand,
and you can pay in Kruggerands
it's like a twinkie land
so get me out of here..

Georgia, Montana, I'd sooner see Havana,
and then San Francisco, better place to be though,
we're stormin the mormons,
babe I'll never take you to the Poconos,
our heater's broke, and our ass is froze,
that's where I'll never go
into the Poconos

I once caught a glimpse of Quaker oats and shrimps

everybody knows a little place like poconos
so don't you ever go, just stay away from it all
stay out of Poconos

Georgia, Montana, I'd sooner see Havana,
and then San Francisco, better place to be though,
we're stormin the mormons,
babe I'll never take you to the Poconos,
our heater's broke, and our ass is froze,
that's where I'll never go
into the Poconos

Malcolm: For sheer volume of good parody concepts, you're the king. If you're really set on stormin' the Mormons, though, you might want to come a bit closer to Utah. I'm not sure how many of 'em there are in the Poconos.

For the record, the Poconos are in northeastern Pennsylvania, not south.

what? I can't parody the north and south of the great state of Pennsylvania?? or the fact that the mormons are in Utah?? like I don't know this?? it's a P-A-R-O-D-Y try the song for humour, pacing and overall, as opposed to geographical accuracy, and locale of various religious/lifestyle groups.. sheesh

You can parody any part of Pennsylvania you like, but the Poconos are in the north. Wouldn't have taken much more effort, or taken away from the song to get that right. It is a decent song though. And honeybees don't bite, they sting =)

Malcolm: I was being complimentary, not critical. Read the Utah comment with a wink - it was just a bit of good-natured ribbing. Because ribbing, you know, enhances your pleasure.
