"Idaho" as written by and Neil Hannon....
Idaho, let me go.
I feel so very far from home

Your folks are kind,
If a little crazy -
Not unlike my own sweet lady.

Well the hotel's clean, not too noisy;
The trouble is, it's in Boise, Idaho.

Idaho, I suppose
You look quite pretty all suede in snow.

But just right now, I'd rather be
Sitting on my sofa with a cup of tea,
Watching premiership football, the proper kind-
Something that y'all just can't find in Idaho....


Idaho, I'm down so low.
I wanna pack my things and go.

Find a flight, make a connection
It terrifies me but I'll make an exception

Just to hold my child and say,
"Shh, what's that noise?"
She wants her daddy but he's in Boise, Idaho.


Idaho, this I know
It's time ten times warmer in New Mexico
But, may I say,
It's plain that you are ten times cooler
Than the state of Utah

Well I miss my girl, hey,
That's my choice, see?
Without her, this whole world is Boise, Idaho.
