Effington

Original Artist: Ben Folds

If there's a God
He's laughing at us
And our football team

Effington could be a wonderful effing place
I can see it from the highway
And I'm wondering
Are they effing in their yards
Effing in their cars
Effing in the trailers and the backroads and the parking lots of Effington
Making my way to Normal, Illinois

Maybe I should ditch this little white rental on the interstate
And start a new effing life
In effington

I could change my name, grow a beard, start a family
Or I could just keep moving on, moving on, moving on, moving on
Not stop 'til I get to Normal

I want to live in Effington
I want to die there too
Please bury me in Effington
In Effington
In Effington
(Oh)

I've got this movie in my mind of Effington
And the soundtrack to it sounds like this

(Da da daaa)

I want to live in Effington
I want to die there too
Please bury me in Effington
In Effington
In Effington
(Oh)

If there's a God
He's laughing at us
And our football team

And then the people who live in Normal
Can buy the movies that I'll make in Effinghton
That's what normal people do
Normal people do it too
Normal people do it too
Normal people do it
People do it
People do it
People do it

I want to live in Effington
I want to die there to
Please bury me in Effington
In Effington
In Effington
In Effington
In Effington
