The Lyrics

I'm fed up with Hurricanes! Here's a new national anthem for Florida!!!
Why did those feet in ancient times
not walk upon the gold coast scene?
Why this unholy land of baud
Till recently unseen?

We found out with an act divine
Blew forth upon those crowded streets
Why was Fort Lauderdale built here?
Among those dark unpleasant winds!

Bring me my generator please!
Bring me my batteries and keys
Bring me my porch, my gardens gone!
Dragging my neighbors roof along!

I cannot cease from boards and nails
Nor shall my saw sleep in my hand
'Till we rebuild Fort Lauderdale!
On New England's green and pleasant land
