The Southland Stole our Water
By W. Montgomery

Intro:

I was rolling north on the Grapevine
Trying to make time
After seeing a friend of mine
Beside me flowed a river banked with Concrete, twenty feet deep
I realized as I was leaving L.A.
Our water was coming the other way

Verse 1:
Yes, the Southland stole our water
They pay a quarter on a dollar
They don?t want rain there
They like the sunshine
For the beach time
And the tourist dime
They kill our fishes
To wash their dishes
And fight their fires
And scrub their tires

Bridge:
They?re topping off their swimming pools
They?re keeping their golf courses green
They?re hosing off the sidewalks all day
And keeping those Mercedes clean

Verse 2:
I wrote a letter to the governor
And his lover, sweet Mariah
To use his muscle
To join the tussle
To save the water
For all California
He drove his Hum Vee
For a look see
Formed a committee
Of V.I.P.?s

Bridge: They?re throwing up more shopping malls
With fountains that gush to the sky
Water sure is cheap
When it belongs to some other guy



-------------------------------------------------
Break:
-------------------------------------------------

Verse 3:
The solution is devolution
Get the Southland back on God?s plan
Dig up their lawns
And plant some cactus
And real soon
They?ll all be sand dunes
Save the water
For our fishes
Let them use sand
To scour their dishes

Outro:
Yes, the Southland stole our water?
The Southland stole our water?.
The Southland stole our water?.
The Southland stole our water?..
