ComScore

I almost get run over by
A uni-cycling naked guy
Followed by a hundred more

 

I trip into the center square
And find myself surrounded
By a goat of every shape and size
They are chewing on the power lines

 

I duck into a market
To buy myself a needed drink
A lady with a VEGAN! tattoo
Says, “You stink!”
And I say…

 

Chorus:
That’s so fucking Portland
So fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
No fucking way
No fucking way

 

That’s why we love Portland
It’s fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
This is our home

 

Is it the gray that brings our colors out?

 

I’m swept up in commotion from
A bearded woman on a drum
Followed by a thousand angry friends

 

I march beside a solar-powered
Brewer on a mission
To save us one beer at a time
And he’s giving me the knowing eye

 

I bump into a busker
Then fumble for a dollar bill
He waves me off,
“You need it more than I (do)”
And I say…

 

Chorus:
That’s so fucking Portland
So fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
No fucking way
No fucking way

 

That’s why we love Portland
It’s fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
This is our home

 

Is it the gray that brings our colors out?

 

Bridge:
Would it be Portland if the rain went away?
Do you think you’d stay?
Embrace the gray…
And I say…

 

Chorus:
That’s so fucking Portland
So fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
No fucking way
No fucking way

 

That’s why we love Portland
It’s fucking Portland
And we wouldn’t change a thing
This is our home

 

Is it the gray that brings our colors out?
Is it the gray that brings our colors out?

Is it the gray that brings our colors out?
Is it the gray that brings our colors out?

Is it the gray that brings our colors out?
Is it the gray that brings our colors out?

So fucking Portland
