"Oregon Girl" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
Oregon girl I've been around the world, but I've never seen another Oregon girl.
Oregon girl (your lips!) (your curls!) I wanna taste of that Oregon girl

I watch you and I make plans.

Try to stop me
Try to stop me
Try to stop me
Try to stop me

    General CommentCorrect Oregon Girl

    Oregon girl ive been around the world but ive never seen another Oregon girl.
    Oregon girl with your lips and curls
    I want a taste of that Oregon girl

    There’s a mountain
    There’s a time to
    They were put up there to keep us apart
    So I watch you making plans and I make plans
    You could kick a drum but
    You just try to stop me now from movin’ on with an Oregon girl
    HEY!

    Wait for me another year or two
    I will graduate and marry you
    You roll the number and I’ll buy the lumber
    To build a house up on an Oregon hill

    There’s a mountain
    There’s a time to
    They were put up there to keep us apart
    So I watch you making plans and I make plans
    You could grow a thumb
    But you just try to stop me now
    From movin’ on with an Oregon girl



    roll a number is a way a saying roll a joint (gasp!)
    kick a drum and grow a thumb mean nothing. we had nothing to say there

    General CommentYeah, I couldn't figure out ALL the lyrics either...but I am pretty sure about the following line after the "You are the number" line......

    Wait for me another year or two
    I will graduate and marry you
    You are the number and I’ll buy the lumber (or all the lumber)
    And we’ll build a house upon an Oregon hill

    Anyone know if these guys have a website or anything?

    General CommentWhatever the lyrics are, this is what they said about the song:

    “Supposed to sound like a chase scene through an airport. Think of the McCallisters barely catching their plane to France in ‘Home Alone.’”

    General CommentCan I just say THANK GOD for SSLYBY?

    Not only do they pronounce "Oregon" correctly, but as an Oregon girl I can attest to the accuracy of lines about rolling joints. That is a very Oregon thing to do (at least Willamette Valley. But that's where all the hills are anyway).
