The Lyrics

Noted the commonality of syllables and subject matter and took it from there.
I'm going to Massachusetts
Massachusetts, here I come
They say somebody turned the lights out there
And I'm gonna turn them on

I'll be standin' on the corner
I'll be tryin' to hitch myself a ride
I'll be gettin' out of San Francisco
'cause when I heard the bad news I cried
Gonna fix that generator
It sure sounds like a couple wires were fried

When I come home to you
Got some things to do
I'll talk about my life
And a lotta people I knew
I'm goin' to Massachusetts
Massachusetts, here I come
I'm gonna fix the generator there
The lights will be comin' on
