You thought the road would never end
But now it’s right around the bend

That special spot that gave you smiles
With billboards for 500 miles

It’s overhyped
and you won’t get satisfaction
Roadside attraction

Fireworks at South of the Border
Stop at Wall Drug; free ice water

See Rock City, get prepared
There’s just a pile of rocks up there

Sleep in a wigwam,
just to get a reaction
Roadside Attraction

Dime museum, Jackalope
Old cars driven by Bob Hope

Just when you think you’ve seen it all
Up pops the world’s biggest twine ball

It’s a tourist trap
And a time wasting distraction
Roadside Attraction

Arizona, you’re ready to swing
But first you have to see The Thing

California, believe it or not
Gravity’s revoked at the Mystery Spot

Head to the gift shop
To complete your transaction
Roadside attraction
