The Lyrics

this song is basically about my hometown of Toledo, Ohio
What's Up? T-Town Down!
Yeah, (Yeah!) OK!

To-le-do, To-le-do!
To-le-do, To-le-do!

I'm in a city in Ohio, It's west of Cleveland, north of Cincinnati,
It's called Toledo
In Ohio it is not the best city, have no name in the NFL, so what?
We're known as the glass city.
It's a good place to chill

the famous list ain't heavy, it's just a lot of people that I don't know!
(Oh Darn! Oh! Oh Darn!)
You're saying "Just tell me! Just tell me",
So get ready for a very short list, I say "Get ready for this",
That's when I told you, I said

Yeah (yeah) I'm going up, in Ohio
Yeah (yeah) We got Katie Holmes and that Klinger
Yeah (yeah) Look at that girl, she is now dating Tommy
Yeah (yeah) And that Klinger guy, I don't know what he's doing
To-le-do, To-le-do!
To-le-do, To-le-do!

So I'm gonna tell you now,
All the other things that are inside of the glass city,
But it shouldn't take long (shouldn't take long)
But I gotta give the rate now, so on a one to ten it's a certified 20,
but that is just me. Hey.

Hey we, got the Mud Hens, hey, and we got the Toledo Storm,
But what I do know is the frogs we have makes the city look pretty
It's called (Toledo)
Don't forget, we got Jeep yeah.
You asked for the rockets and I
Say UT, why would anyone want to leave?
And I said


Watch out!
This song is ridiculous, but it's really supposed to be serious.
And now! These this city's not on the prowl,
And when I am good and ready, I'm a take a bow.
Forget about Cleveland, I'm a tell the truth,
Toledo has better schools, to educate our youth.
So come to this city and stop reading this song,
No matter where you are, it won't take long.
Hey you can jog or take a plane, we got a bridge named after Anthony Wayne.
I don't like it how, the gas prices are reaching the thou-sands,
Lets think, will you come here please, Toledo ain't bad, we have no fleas
So what I am trying to say, just use your head
we want you guys to come to Toledo instead and say


Take that and rewind it back, Toledo is the city to make ya body go (clap)
Take that and rewind it back, Toledo is the city to make ya body go (clap)
Take that and rewind it back, Toledo is the city to make ya body go (clap)
Take that and rewind it back, Toledo is the city to make ya body go (clap)

Coulda paced better in some spots, coulda had less obsession with Jamie Farr. But a 5 overall just for the enthusiasm.

DKTOS so I am unqualified to vote. But being from Toledo (it's East Side in fact) I still enjoyed the sentiments expressed. I like Toledo too even if I joke about it. But no one not from Toledo better do that.

Way to rep your city! Although I was expecting more references to the scale company.
