I went to Alaska to ask her.
Idaho'ped we'd elope.

United States some day we'd Americas our love.
The last waltz, the last waltz, the last; the last love, the last, love the last.

Turnpikes collide to make a memory and of' Tennessee her in my dreams.
Missouri's my company with periodic strangers between.

I called from a Kansas telephone.
Her mother told me she was not at home.
Colorado, a dear i did.
Her mother told me that's not what she said.

Utah 'lked of traveling to Hono Lulu; travel the whole world in a hot air balloon.
We spent our time on a train but you had to go.
Now I have boarded a train in route to Juneau.

I was sure I would not make it here. Nevada see you once again, my dear.
Carolina I'll give you a choice.
My actions pale in comparison to my voice.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant! Holy shit.

    I went to Alaska to ask her.
    Idaho'ped we'd elope.
    (I'd a-hoped we'd elope)

    United States some day we'd Americas our love.
    (You and I united stay, some day we'd a marry cause of our love)
    The last waltz, the last waltz, the last; the last love, the last, love the last.

    Turnpikes collide to make a memory and of' Tennessee her in my dreams.
    (And often I see her in my dreams)
    Missouri's my company with periodic strangers between.
    (Misery's my company)

    United States some day we'd Americas our love.
    (You and I united stay, some day we'd a marry cause of our love)
    The last waltz, the last waltz, the last; the last love, the last, love the last.

    I called from a Kansas telephone.
    Her mother told me she was not at home.
    Colorado, a dear i did.
    (Call her a doe, deer I did)
    Her mother told me that's not what she said.

    Utah 'lked of traveling to Hono Lulu; travel the whole world in a hot air balloon.
    (You talked)
    We spent our time on a train but you had to go.
    Now I have boarded a train in route to Juneau.

    I was sure I would not make it here. Nevada see you once again, my dear.
    (Never to see you once again, my dear)
    Carolina I'll give you a choice.
    My actions pale in comparison to my voice.

    United States some day we'd Americas our love.
    (You and I united stay, some day we'd a marry cause of our love)
    The last waltz, the last waltz, the last; the last love, the last, love the last.





    Clever word play. Funny stuff.
