"Joppa Road" as written by and Freeman Melchiondo....
How would you feel, if I took you away
To a place I know, a place where we could stay
Called Joppa Road, a pretty place I know
Where we can go, called Joppa Road

The things I feel on Joppa Road
Can make me stay, and make me go
This old road where I long to go
Called Joppa Road, where we can go

Put your best dress on, there's a place I know
Where we can go, called Joppa Road
It's a little ways where the sun shines down
Where we drive real slow, on Joppa Road

Joppa Road, a pretty place I know
Where we can go, called Joppa Road

Hey, yo bro, that's a dude I know
Works on Joppa Road, at the Sunoco
If we drive by slow, with the top down low
We'll heel and toe on Joppa Road

How would you feel, if I took you away
To a place I know, a place where we could stay
Called Joppa Road, a pretty place I know
Where we can go, called Joppa Road

It's a little ways where the sun shines down
Where we drive real slow on Joppa Road
On Joppa Road, Joppa Road

Baby, you look great today

How would you feel, if I took you away
To a place I know, a place where we could stay
Called Joppa Road, a pretty place I know
Where we can go, called Joppa Road

    Song MeaningI once looked up Joppa Road on google maps and it is a road - a major road - in the Baltimore area. I played any age-appropriate Ween songs I had for my 6 and 8 years old last week. It blew their mind that it was the same guy singing in every song.

    General CommentYea this a good WEEN song, about a road. Love, friendship, and strong feelings for the road are all described in the song. It is as Boognish wishes.

    General CommentI really love the way this song makes working at "the Sunnoco" sound exotic and exciting....

    My OpinionI think this song is poking fun at the Beach Boys' 1988 hit Kokomo due to its similarity in musical style, lyrics and repetitiveness.
