The Lyrics

We still remember when
You weren't all just junk and slime,
We'd have such a good old time,
Picnic parties, down by your beaches
Waves as blue as the sky
Lots a' memories..

Oh, Erie
We used to net and bag
Those big tasty Walleyed Pike,
Now all that we snag is a rusty bike

You're so dreary,
Not clean like good old days gone by..
You don't look well, gee!
Debris and algae,
Now, Erie
Fish roll over and die..

We still remember when
We cruised you in boats a' speed,
And wind surfed and water skiied
Snorkel diving,
Down on your bottom,
Crystal clear to the eye..

Now it's phosporous,
My Erie,
Ain't been that long since,
Those days when you didn't stink..
Water from you,
We could almost drink..

You weren't smeary,
In the good old days gone by..
Now, you're not well, gee!
There's so much algae,
That Erie,
Fish roll over and die..
