Lyrics

I don't wanna be in Findlay cuz it goes to bed at nine
I don't wanna be in Bowling Green cuz it's plastered all the time
I don't wanna be in Lima cuz there's nothing there to do
I just wanna spend some time with you

I don't wanna be in Cincy cuz it smells like burning tires
I don't wanna be in in Cleveland cuz the lake'll catch on fire
I don't wanna be in Dayton, not without a .22
I just wanna spend some time with you

    Well it's so damn hard to find a reason
    To stay in this infuriating place
    But it's harder still, to find a reason to leave

I don't wanna be in New York cuz it's buried under grime
I don't wanna be in Portland where it's raining all the time
I don't wanna be in San Francisco in the early morning dew
I just wanna spend some time with you

I don't wanna be in London cuz the skies are always gray
I don't wanna be in Paris cuz I don't parlez no francais
I don't wanna be in China with a horrifying flu
I just wanna spend some time with you

    It's a rainy Sunday morning in Van Buren
    The pious folks all scurry into church
    We watch them trudge through the mud and sludge
    I guess this place could be a whole lot worse

    They say the grass is always greener
    On the other side of the county line
    But I'll just stay, brown grass is pretty anyway
    Cuz I just wanna spend some time with you

Nice song. I started laughing out really loud when I heard "I don't parlez no francais" because I've been living in Paris for a year now and I'm still struggling with the language :)
