Let's start a new country up (Cuyahoga!)

Let's put our heads together

And start a new country up

Our father's father's father tried

Erased the parts he didn't like

Let's try to fill it in

Bank the quarry river, swim

We knee-skinned it you and me

We knee-skinned that river red

*

This is where we walked

This is where we swam

Take a picture here

Take a souvenir

*

This land is the land of ours

This river runs red over it

We knee-skinned it you and me

We knee-skinned that river red

And we gathered up our friends

Bank the quarry river, swim

We knee-skinned it you and me

Up underneath the river bed

*

This is where we walked

This is where we swam

Take a picture here

Take a souvenir

Cuyahoga

Cuyahoga, gone

*

Let's put our heads together

And start a new country up

Up underneath the river bed

We'll burn the river down

This is…
