'Bout that time
They asked me where was I going you know
I, said, well
You have to be reasonable
So you know
I've never been away from home before
And, uh, besides they gave me a good deal
And I think that, uh

You know, the nation
That, you know, I would like to, live under
(What in the world is this boy talking about?)

We couldn't bring this funk to you
