Riki works in a record store on the weekend
Between Vincent and Second street
Writing songs on a VS840 eight track
Using midi to push the beats

Tony drives for the Inland Empire Weekly
Reads the trades and he's signing up
Playing drums in the Teenage Bon Scott Revival
Giggin' out once or twice a month

Hear the news indie blues taking over the suburbs
On the street with the beats and all the girls hanging out
And Riki says we should sing
Caroline, Caroline Secretly Minnesotan

Caroline poses native Californian
Santa Monica born and raised
None were wise to the Four H clover key chain
Or just how much she loves the rain
Driving down from the bunny bars in Takeena
Tony he's feeling lost
All the while Dita looks to the stars for the answers
Hoping someday their paths will cross

Hear the news indie blues taking over the suburbs
On the street with the beats and all the girls hanging out
And Riki says we should sing
Caroline, Caroline Secretly Minnesotan

Dita waits in the parking lot for her best friend
Sarah she's always late
Sarah moved from the smallest town in Virginia
A place she would learn to hate

Caroline runs the lanes but she skips the bases
Plays the room like she'd like to be
Riki says that my band's just a Sebadoh rip off
And I can't say I disagree

Hear the news indie blues taking over the suburbs
On the street with the beats and all the girls hanging out
And Riki says we should sing
Caroline, Caroline Secretly Minnesotan
