Old song takes a detour

UTAH WE LOVE THEE

or ODE TO ROAD CONSTRUCTION(With apologies to Evan Stephens)

Land of the torn up road, Utah, we love thee.

Land of the orange cone, Utah, we love thee.

Traveling through our lovely state

Fifty detours you must take,

Rest assured that you'll be late,

Utah, we love thee.

Land of construction mess, Utah, we love thee.

Land of the orange vest, Utah, we love thee.

My onramp's not here today,

Guess I'll go another way,

It was here just yesterday,

Utah, we love thee.

Land of the changing lane, Utah, we love thee.

Land of the frazzled brain, Utah, we love thee.

I-15's a parking lot,

Tempers sure are getting hot,

Motorists are being shot,

Utah, we love thee.

When driving far or near, Utah we love thee.

You can't get there from here, Utah we love thee.

It used to be such fun to roam,

But now, in this construction zone,

I think I'd rather stay at home!

Utah, we love thee.
