IN CHARLOTTESVILLE

Thomas Jefferson's spirit still runs wild
In Charlottesville
'Cause Sally Hemmings gave him a black child
In Charlottesville
Edgar Allan Poe massive debts compiled
In Charlottesville
Nobody mentions that when he's profiled
In Charlottesville
Wahoos strut the Lawn at T. J.'s brainchild
In Charlottesville
Them brainless Hokies are sweetly reviled
In Charlottesville.

Masons fed Main Street a load of red bricks
In Charlottesville
Country hicks go there for Friday night kicks
In Charlottesville
Some of them don't even hide their cowlicks
In Charlottesville
Which is why we have so many spastics
In Charlottesville
Slow-burning candles melt down to their quicks
In Charlottesville
As pub-crawling locals get in last licks
In Charlottesville.

Bumbling bees bumble their sting
In Charlottesville
Queen bees buzz about in search of a king
In Charlottesville
Tone deaf lovebirds about love on key sing
In Charlottesville
Retired Crosby fans sing along with Bing
In Charlottesville
Melting flingers in Springtime spring a fling
In Charlottesville
Swingers don't even try to hide their swing
In Charlottesville.

Things broke don't stay broke long
In Charlottesville
Things that could don't go wrong
In Charlottesville
Bluegrass and gothic musicians get along
In Charlottesville
Especially when they're passing a bong
In Charlottesville
Michael's Bistro entertains the throng
In Charlottesville
Smart writers might even write a dumb song
In Charlottesville.
