( Baltimore Baltimoron song lyrics, Hon )
I CAN TELL YOU'RE FROM BAWLMER
Copyright 2007 - MickTerry.com

Coming out here was an ear-opener for me.
A whole new career brought a clear opportunity.
But there's one thing that confronts me time & time again.
All of these people think I'm from a foreign land.

"Where are you from?" my ear drums constantly receive.
"Are you from Bostun? Or Englund? Somewhere way back East?"
I had tried my best to lose it:   thought it didn't show.
But when they sing the "Nashn'l Anth'm", I shout "O!!!"

    "I KEN TELL YORE FRUM BAWLMER
    by th' way you say 'Hon', Hon.
    By th' way you say 'warder',
    by th' things that you've dun.
    I KEN TELL YORE FRUM BAWLMER.
    You can't hide where you're frum, Hon.
    Say 'Hello' to another Baldimoron."

Yeah, I did go "downey oshun" a couple times.
Who needs all them holes? Duckpin bowling's the perfect size.
& for sure there ain't no crabs like from the Chesapeake.
I'll take a "meatloaf sammich" "wid" humidity.

    CHORUS

        Never owned a pink flamingo.
        Not turned on by beehive hair.
        & those cats-eye glasses really put me off.
        Never had a formstone row house
        with the sagging marble stairs.
        & I always thought John Waters was a little rough.

Walking in L.A., kind of late, one hot summer night,
long, dark alleyway, I'm afraid someone wants a fight.
Twenty guys now all surround me:   think it is my end.
As I am saying my Hail Mary's, they begin:

    "We KEN TELL YORE FRUM BAWLMER
    by th' way you say 'Hon', Hon.
    By th' way you say 'warder',
    by th' things that you've dun.
    We KEN TELL YORE FRUM BAWLMER.
    You can't hide where yore frum, Hon.
    Say 'Hello' to some other Baldimorons."

[spoken] "Hey, nex' time yore in Bawlmer Cowny, Murlin,
          how's abouts we go eat Bertha's Mussels down Fells Point.
          Then we'll hit Dundauck an' grab th' Beltway ta B'lair.
          Th' news wuz showink an amblance leavin' an ool spill
          that was takink way tew long ta warsh down up there.
          How's about them 'O's', man?
          Yeah, th' Ravens are cool, but things idn't th' same
          since Irsey snuck th' Colts frum 'Morial Stadyum.
          Whut I wouldn' give for an ice cold Nashn'l Bo right now!
          Whut ?!?! You got 'em on ice in th' zink? Thanks loads, man.
          Tell me, is th' Hon Man still workink th' sign on BW Parkway?
          Is your sister still usink that hairspray junk in all th' wrong places?
          Cawl me lader tuhdaey. Buh-bahyee ... "
