lyrics

A hundred and fifty years ago, back in the fur trade…
That is when our ancestors killed to make a state.
And so long to the buffalo grazing on the plains!
So long to the people who liked to eat their brains!

And, the geographers were right
(new professors basking in the limelight).
You might say that it seems trite.
That’s because you’re looking back in hindsight.

Only just ten years ago on the Atlantic Coast…
That’s when the fishes, you know, they were toast.
And so long to the ocean too, and all of you within!
So long to the people who never learned how to swim!

And, the geographers were right
(new professors basking in the limelight).
You might say that it seems trite.
That’s because you’re looking back in hindsight.

Only just ten minutes ago someone right outside
asked me for some money so that they could get by.
And so long to the people who have no equity!
So long to those of you with no industry!

And, the geographers were right
(new professors basking in the limelight).
You might say that it seems trite.
That’s because you’re looking back in hindsight.
