In honor of SpinTunes Two . . .
We’d like to present to you . . .
A “not-so-very-long,”
Completely worthless song
About Lansing, Michigan!

Lansing, Michigan’s
The greatest place on earth!
So why not come to Lansing
And be part of all the mirth?
We’re selling houses here
For nearly half of what they’re worth
In Lansing, Michigan!

Don’t believe the news --
Our city’s not a dive.
Our unemployment’s ten percent,
But -- eh! -- we still survive!
‘Cause once GM is solvent,
Our economy will thrive
In Lansing, Michigan!

It’s true -- for major sports teams
We’re a little too far west.
We can go watch the Lugnuts,
But Detroit’s got all the rest.
But even if we’re lacking,
There’s a fact that brings us smiles --
We’re very proud to say
There’s not a Wolverine for miles!!

Lansing, Michigan
Is where you oughtta be!
So many bars to frequent
And so many sights to see!
And if you come to visit
You could come and visit me!!

In Lan...
(Don’t be a prima donna!)
...sing . . .
(You know you really wanna!)
(We don’t you come and visit me?)

(It’s nowhere NEAR Ohio!!!)
