The Lyrics

This may be slightly unusual being that most of my effort was creating parody lyrics to sections of the original song which are not part of the lyrics (the chanting).
Aye aye hi, O-hi-hi-o, hi-o, hi-o
Aye aye hi, oh I-o-wa, o-wa, o-wa

Leave, Location
Feeling, Emotion
Don’t be afraid your last week
Don’t forget the place you’re born
Just look into a map my friend
That will be the return to your youth
The return to the Midwest

Aye aye hi, O-hi-hi-o,
Oh I oh yeah oh I-Iowa
Oh hi Auro-ro-ra, Pe-or-ee-yor-ria,
The return to the Midwest

If you want, then start to pack
If you must, then start tonight
Eastern shore, goodbye
Just believe in destiny
Don’t care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don’t give up and use the chance
To return to the Midwest

Aye aye hi, O-hi-hi-o,
Oh I oh yeah oh I-Iowa
Oh hi Auro-ro-ra, Pe-or-ee-yor-ria, Illinoy-oy-oy
Oh and De Moines, De Moines, O-Iowa
Oh-hi-hi-o oh Iowa

That’s not the beginning of the end
That’s the return to your youth
The return to the Midwest

Aye aye hi, O-hi-hi-o,
Oh I oh yeah oh I-Iowa, O-hi-hi-o
Oh I oh yeah oh Iowa, O-hi-hi-o
Illinois, O-hi-hi-o
Oh I oh yeah oh Iowa, O-hi-hi-o
Oh I oh yeah oh Iowa, O-hi-hi-o
(repeat and fade)

555 just for doing Enigma (I'm usually the unusual song/artist cherry-breaker...you beat me to it)

Larry, what about my home state of South Dakota? It's part of the Midwest, too. 555 for doing an unusual artist, but DKTOS.

Cool parody. The chant lines work best with Ohio and Iowa, which contain mostly vowels, which is probably why he used those states names in the chant lines. I suppose he could have used one or two other state names, but this is good. I know this song too. 5s
