The sorry state of the State Song

Florida’s State Song, “Old Folks at Home” is under assault in our shitty Politically Erect Age, suddenly “controversial” due to lyrics written in 1851.

I’d be more inclined to agree if anyone remembered anything but the tune. Also, the offensive terms can easily be changed.

Someone made a terrific video to go with the foremost awful attempt at replacing Florida’s state song with Florida (Where the Sawgrass Meets the Sky). How clever to put the word “Florida” in a song about the State of Florida! Strangely the lyrics leave out horrendous automobile drivers, horrible humidity and giant cockroaches (although at 1:30 “cultures rich” does sound a little like “cockroaches”).

To me the Florida tune sounds like a Disneyfied (apt) mutation of O Canada (apter) and snippets of the Jurassic Park Theme Song (aptest due to humidity).

Your opinion will most certainly vary.

This would make a much better Florida State Song. I know what’s best.

    Florida sucks, period. It’s full of old farts and nincompoops who vote Rethuglican against their own self-interests.

    Florida is Florida. But who can top this ditty?

    Here I sit, cheeks-a-flexin’,
    giving birth to another Texan!

    Better a Texan than a Floridian, mofo!
