SONG - STOP RUNNIN MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND

WERE FLORIDA SUGAR AND WERE RAISING CANE
BURNING AND A SLASHING AND A TRASHING UP YOUR GLADES
WE GOT A HANKERING FOR MONEY, GOT MORE MONEY THAN BRAINS
BOYS BACKWASH THAT DIRTY WATER INTO OKEECHOBEES FLOOD PLAIN

Chorus: FLORIDA, FLORIDA IM HERE TO SAY
WERE MORE THAN JUST THE TAIL END OF THE U. S. OF A
AND IM TELLING YOU BIG BOYS STOP MESSING AROUND
STOP RUNNING MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND

WERE VINDICATOR INDUSTRIES, MULBERRY F.- L.-.A.
WE RUN YOUR FOOD THROUGH RADIATION, IT STAYS BETTER THAT WAY
FORGET ABOUT THE COBALT OR THE NUCLEAR WASTE
HERES A FOUR MONTH OLD STRAWBERRY,
DONT YOU LOVE THAT FRESH FLORIDA TASTE IM NOT BUYING IT
 
Chorus: FLORIDA, FLORIDA IM HERE TO SAY
WERE MORE THAN JUST THE TAIL END OF THE U. S. OF A
AND IM TELLING YOU BIG BOYS STOP MESSING AROUND
STOP RUNNING MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND

WERE THE LYKES BROTHERS AND WE GOT A BEEF
WITH ALL THOSE CANOERS DOWN ON FISHEATING CREEK
WE GONNA STRING US UP SOME BARBED WIRE,
THEYLL RUN HOG-TIED HOME
FLORIDIANS REMEMBER, WHEN ITS LYKES ITS GONEHOT DOG

Chorus: FLORIDA, FLORIDA IM HERE TO SAY
WERE MORE THAN JUST THE TAIL END OF THE U. S. OF A
AND IM TELLING YOU BIG BOYS STOP MESSING AROUND
STOP RUNNING MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND

THE OLETTA RIVER STILL RUNS WILD THROUGH MIAMI
SHES A DEVELOPERS DREAM 'CEPT FOR ALL THOSE PESKY MANATEES
WE BANKRUPT THOSE DEVELOPERS, THEY SAID THAT THEY WAS ROBBED
BY ENVIRONMENTAL WATCHDOGS ON A 24 HOUR JOB
WE PUT THE BITE ON EM

Chorus: FLORIDA, FLORIDA IM HERE TO SAY
WERE MORE THAN JUST THE TAIL END OF THE U. S. OF A
AND IM TELLING YOU BIG BOYS STOP MESSING AROUND
STOP RUNNING MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND

FLORIDA, FLORIDA IM HERE TO SAY
HEY FELLOW FLORIDIANS YOU ALL STOP GIVEN IT AWAY
AND IM TELLING YOU BIG BOYS STOP MESSING AROUND
STOP RUNNING MY FLORIDA HOME INTO THE GROUND
