We’re going to Michigan.
We’re getting out of the city and driving on the road to Michigan.
We’re setting out from Logan Square,
A little way down 94 we’ll be there
In Michigan.

We’ll go mushroom hunting and find morels in Michigan.
We’re driving past Sox Park escaping city smells in Michigan.
We’re gonna put away our phones
And look out for Petoskey stones
In Michigan.
Hike to see a waterfall!
We’re looking for a quiet highway
Out beyond the Chicago Skyway...

Oh my god it’s Indiana!
Jesus, gambling, fireworks!
Guns and guns and nuclear power,
Jesus, Trump, abortion bad!
Strip malls, strip bars, strip paint, Mike Pence.
Need a lawyer? Need a Jesus?
Jesus Christ is my attorney.
Fireworks and cheaper gas,
Secretary Mayor Pete.
You are leaving Indiana!

Welcome to Michigan.
You are now in Michigan.
So very glad to be in Michigan.

Guns and kidnapping the Governor!
