IOWA GETS THAT THROWBACK SPRINGSTEEN CORNPOOP FEELING

New, 376 comments

Iowa has throwback uniforms, and they have reduced us to fake constipated Springsteen lyrics from the random glory word production machine that writes all lyrics for bands that use the word "heartland" without being bitchy about it. Sing along with the "Ballad of Poopsmith Ferentz," or "The Cornin'," or "Tractor Sunset," and be sure to bear down hard like you're trying to crap out the ghost of Woody Guthrie and several well-encamped Rolling Stone writers all at once.

Ain't got nothin' to live for

Little girl it's me and you

And this poop brown ol' jersey I got

From somewhere back around '52ooooohhhh

There's a dusty road full o' nothin'

Little girl put your hand in miiiiiiiine

The kids on the street lookin' hard

Some swamps and random references to 1969iiiiiine

There's a handful of angels behind us

Bells in the air and American woooorrrrds

Vague godly mentions and blue jeans

Apostrophes endin' all ah yer verrrbbbbbs

Corn poop shirts for the Hawkeyes

Corn poop shirts for the heartland booyyyyyyys

Corn poop shirts for the Hawkeyes

Corn poop shirts and AMERICAN NOIIIIIIISE

Lord here's the part where we are quiet

Just an ol' fish tuggin' at the same ol' hooook

A Brett Favre Wrangler ads for your ears

Real folks talkin' about about AMERRRIIICAAAAN BOOOOKS

Corn poop shirts are authentic

Corn poop shirts the STANZICAN WAAAYAYYY

Corn poop shirts for the critics

Hobos, vague something and ANGELS AT PLAAAAYYYYY

Corn poop shirts for the Hawkeyes

Corn poop shirts for the heartland booyyyyyyys

Corn poop shirts for the Hawkeyes

Corn poop shirts and AMERICAN NOIIIIIIISE

[fade out]

[seriously if you write five thousand songs ten will be good]

[grrr heartland and Tom Joad and stuff]

[Bruce Springsteen is musical American Apparel for the NPR crowd craving authentic heartlandness]

[Also, these jerseys really aren't horrible save for the poop colors, and Wyoming wears worse shit every week HA GET IT.]
