        The m[B]idwest farmers' daughters really m[A/B]ake you feel alright
        And the N[E]orthern girls with the way they kiss
        They keep their [F#]boyfriends warm at night

Verse 2:

The West coast has the sunshine, and the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand
I been all around this great big world and I've seen
all kinds of girls
But I couldn't wait to get back in the states,
Back to the cutest girls in the world
