"Idaho" as written by and Pat/stafford Monahan....
Texas are you my friend, you live so close to the end
Texas are you my friend, cause I'm afraid of you
Hey Maine hey, you're a little too high for me
And Fla you're just a little too low
D.C. you could be the end of me
I think I'm movin to Idaho
I ain't afraid of you

Oh, people on the outside lookin' in
Mother Nature shakes, what then what then
Oh, people on the outside lookin' through
She'll shake you to Idaho, that's what she'll do
Oh, oh Carolina Brother's you make me crawl under the covers
I just can't get myself to go, oh no
Hey Joe I see your name too, but there is nothin' that they can do
I think I'm movin' to Idaho
I ain't afraid of you

Oh, people on the outside lookin' in
Mother Nature shakes, what then what then
Oh, people on the outside lookin' through
She'll shake you to Idaho, that's what she'll do

    General CommentAn Excellent Song

    He's saying Idaho's more peaceful... he's not afraid of it, no big cities... he likes the peaceful nature... everyone else thinks potatoes... and that's exactly why he's movin' to Idaho.

    General CommentIdaho represents that peaceful, tranquil place, some place to escape the world. He wants to go there, but he knows that he has too much going on to give up.

    General CommentUmm, in case you hadn't figured it out, this is satirical beyond compare. He chose Idaho because of all the reasons you guys have already said..."Wait, Idaho? Why would he go to Idaho?"... Trust me, potatoes is not all. Try hard-right conservatives and neo-Nazis. I live right on the border of Idaho and Washington.

    I once saw a shirt that said, "God Bless America. Except Idaho. F*** Idaho." They should make a video for this song wearing this shirt.
