“Regional Girl” Lyrics

She’s a regional girl
Come to the big city
Give it a whirl
She thinks that she can make it
She thinks that she can take it
I think she’s gonna end up flippin’ burgers in a basement

He’s a regional guy
Come to the big city
Give it a try
He wants to be a mover
Yeah, he wants to shake it up
I think he’s gonna end up pourin’ Pepsi in a cup
’Cause it’s a regional lie
Da na do do do do do do do, da na do do do do do do

Mary, Mary, Mississippi, Indiana Jones
Did you think that you could come and make it on your own?
A-singing whoa, oh oh oh, whoa, oh oh oh…

Eddie, Eddie, good and ready, now you’ve got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin’ with your pants
A-singing whoa, oh oh oh, whoa, oh oh oh…

It’s a regional lie
The grass is always greener
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big one
Yeah, you wanna strike it rich
I think you’re gonna end up waitin’ tables on some bitch
’Cause it’s a regional lie
Da na do do do do do do do, da na do do do do do do

[break]

It’s a regional lie
The grass is always greener
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big one
Yeah, you wanna strike it rich
I think you’re gonna end up waitin’ tables on some bitch
’Cause it’s a regional lie
Da na do do do do do do do, da na do do do do do do
Da na do do do do do do do, da na do do do do do do
