"Massachusetts" as written by Maurice Ernest Gibb, Robin Hugh Gibb and Barry Alan Gibb....
On the underside of Massachusetts
splintered by an empty freighter car
that strafes my deepest fear
I could never leave you, Massachusetts
like water drained at night out a reservoir
not half a mile from here

Underneath the cover of the marshes
is where I buried my best words
to last a hundred thousand years
I could never leave them in Massachusetts
like water drained at night, a reservoir
not half a mile from here

Who are you to tell me?
Who are you to tell me?
Who are you to try and lead me
from a place you never even came?

Underneath the cover of the marshes
is where I buried my best words
to last a hundred thousand years
I could never leave them in Massachusetts
the water drained at night, a reservoir
not half a mile

Who are you to tell me?
Who are you to tell me?
Who are you to try and lead me
from this place you never even came?

    General CommentOn the underside of Massachusetts
    Splintered by an empty freighter car
    That strafes my deepest fear
    I could never leave you Massachusetts

    Like water draining out of
    A reservoir not half a mile from here

    Underneath the cover of the marshes
    Is where I buried my best words
    To last 100,000 years
    I could never leave them in Massachusetts

    Like water draining out
    A reservoir not half a mile...

    Who are you to tell me?
    Who are you to tell me?

    Who are you to try and lead me
    From a place you never even came?
