WHY I LIVE WHERE I DO

Our Home is La Grange
(Sung to the tune of
Home, Home on the Range
)


by Brewster Hudspeth

Our Man in La Grange
Oh, give me a house where there's seldom a mouse
and the deer and the emu are food,
Where trees grow in the street
and there's sausage for meat
and we fish when we get in the mood.
REFRAIN

Our home is La Grange
Where we're all mostly German and Czechs
Where our courthouse is square
and we've got our own hair
And for strangers we'll stick out our Nzechs.
We've forgotten the flood,
and we've cleaned up the mud,
and our teenagers wreck their own cars.
We don't mention  "The Ranch".
All our banks have a branch,
and we put our cucumbers in jars

Refrain
We've got plumbing and doors,
All our houses have floors.
We've a Wal-Mart and Dollar Store too.
We've got Monument Hill
(Jumping off is a thrill),
And our northers and bonnets are blue.

Refrain
Just so you'll know,
If we drive real slow,
We're probably checking our fence.
And when we drive fast,
We're not afraid to be last.
We just want air to blow through our vents.

Refrain
