lyrics

Louisville

Ooh baby what a thrill
livin our lives in Louisville
we got downtown Nulu
Shively too
Clifton Heights
and the Louisville Zoo

ooh baby you know it’s true
born & living in the 502
we got Farmington
Locust Grove
Highlands Kroger
& River Road uh huh

welcome to the hometown of Nicole Sherzinger
& definitely the first place to put cheese on a burger
while we’re at it i think we invented barbecue
& how about lasagna’s from here, let’s make that true too

our climate’s just right, we get all four seasons
& also 5 weekdays & 2 on the weekends
if you’re looking for a place above ground, highway adjacent
have I got a spot that meets those expectations

ooh baby what a thrill
livin our lives in Louisville
we got multiple Rallys
Papa John
Kimmet & Doug sing your favorite songs

ooh baby you know it’s true
born & livin in the 502
we got Preston Highway
Fort Knox
Crescent Hill and Big Rock

but I don't care for St. Matthews

ooh baby what a thrill
now we’re back in Louisville
we got the Ford plant
Germantown
St Joe’s picnic
Underground Sounds

ooh baby you know it’s true
my favorite 3 numbers are 502
we got Bardstown Road
and Falls City Beer
a park named for Mister Belvedere uh huh

that’s right we’re in the city of angels
the precipice from which civil society dangles
a health care hub & a trash food mecca
we can breed ya birth ya nurse ya & wreck ya

with alcohol cigarettes & fried chicken
cash your paycheck at the track & bet on 6 to win
tourists downtown slugger bats swingin
hoping a mob of teens don’t rob em on their way to 610

hoping there’s not a fee for rocks in that small batch bourbon
watching a ton of folks get punched at the Ali museum
there’s just a certain volatility to Louisville biz
but nobody’s a villain here cuz everyone is

ooh baby what a thrill
villians was a pun on Louisville
we got the Brown Hotel
Whiskey Row
the Thornton Mart on lower Brownsboro

but I don't care for St. Matthews

I just don’t really like St Matthews

Ooh baby what a thrill
livin our lives in Louisville
