lyrics

It’s the smallest state in the Union but one of the most densely populated
It’s not really an island but it was first founded as one
It was the first colony to declare independence from Britain and my baby’s from there…

So let’s go to Rhode Island baby
That’s where you’re from
You can take me around to the places
You left when you were young

Let’s find a good bar my love
Open up the past
Talk about how grateful we are
We found each other at last

There was a nuclear explosion there in the ’60s
They make lots of toys in Pawtucket but for some reason cap guns are illegal
H.P. Lovecraft, Ruth Buzzi & Chris Toppin are from there…

So let’s go to Rhode Island baby
It just makes sense
I’m your Roger Williams baby,
And you’re my providence

Let’s party in the trailer park
Where you grew up
We’ll shower the place with our love,
Have ’em drinking from our loving cup

[solo]

There was Chalk Man who always came with his dog and doled out homemade chalk to the kiddies
There was the Trojan Tent where Miss B. danced suggestively to “Brick House”
Marilyn Chambers, Cormac McCarthy, and Tanya Donelly are from there

Let’s go to Rhode Island baby
Cianci was mayor
Never lost an election
But went to jail and left his hair
Let’s go to Rhode Island baby
It’s where you’re from
You can take me around to the places
You left when you were young
