What I'm Listening To Today

Ohio (Come Back to Texas) by Bowling For Soup

The Lyrics:

BOWLING FOR SOUP LYRICS (from azlyrics.com)

"Ohio (Come Back To Texas)"

She said she needed a break
a little time to think
but then she went to Cleveland
with some guy named Leelan
that she met at the bank

There's nothing wrong with Ohio
except the snow and the rain
I really like Drew Carey
and I'd love to see the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame

So when you're done doing whatever
and when you're thru doing whoever
you know Denton County will be right here waiting for you....

Come back to Texas
Its just not the same since you went away
Before you lose your accent
and forget all about the Lonestar State
There's a seat for you at the rodeo
and I've got every slow dance saved
Besides the Mexican food sux north of here anyway

I think I made a mistake
Its not that easy to take
She went to make a deposit
then she cleaned out her closet
Guess I'll sit here and wait

For her to come back home (I'd wish you come back home)
it shouldn't take very long (so long so long)
i bet she misses the sunrise
and misses the fruit flies but i could be wrong

So when you're done doing whatever
and when you're thru doing whoever
you know Denton County will be right here waiting for you....

Come back to Texas
Its just not the same since you went away
I bet you missed your exit
and drove right on thru the Lone Star State
There's a seat for you at the rodeo
and I've got every slow dance saved
Besides the Mexican food sux north of here anyway

Troy Aikmen wants you back
Willie Nelson wants you back
NASA wants you back
and the Bush twins want you back
and Pantera wants you back
and Blue Bell wants you back

I got a premonition
I'm taking a petition
and the whole state's gonna sign

Come back to Texas
Its just not the same since you went away
Before you lose your accent
and forget all about the Lone Star State
There's a seat for you at the rodeo
and I've got every slow dance saved

Come back to Texas
Its just not the same since you went away
Before you lose your accent
and forget all about the Lone Star State
There's a seat for you at the rodeo
and I've got every slow dance saved
Besides the Mexican food sux north of here anyway
Besides the Mexican food sux north of here anyway
Besides the Mexican food sux north of here anyway

YOU SOOOOO have to tape that for me! I MISS your mixes, by the way...I know you can't anymore...sigh.

I'd love to tape it for you! Can you hear it via the link? I'd be recording it on a CD, though ... if I can figure out the CD burner ... well, Doug can help me :)

Not at work, but I'll try later(: OOOOH! We could do CDs! I'll have to put one together for you, too. I'll choose the songs and make LSP do it(:

Oh wow...what a faboo song! And it's true! I need to hear this!

Man, I so miss the days of mixed tapes. I was just actually sitting here thinking about mixed cds. I wish I had proper cd burning software and my entire cd collection on my computer so I could do that. There's so much I'd like to have all in one place and to share!
