Thread Name: Lyr Req: I Walk the Line (parody)
Subject: Lyr Add: COUNTY LINE (parody of I WALK THE LINE)
Back in 2000, we came up with this parody of IWtL -

COUNTY LINE
(Tim/Nancy Weil)

Takoma Park is a city unified
With a single set of rules to abide
Our jurisdiction no longer us divides
We're doing fine....we moved the line

We've kept a close watch on this county line
We've lived in PG County most the time
Now they're tearing down the old street signs
We're doing fine....we moved the line

You see more people in the local parks
They say it's safer walking after dark
Police tell us there will be a drop in crime
We're doing fine...we moved the line

Today we're living in Montgomery
As a part of this new community
The zoning maps will show a new design
We're doing fine...we moved the line

They say this town's full of radicals and kooks
Who boycott lawn mowers, Burma Shave and nukes
From time-to-time we've been known to organize
Now we've combined....two county lines

Takoma Park is a city unified
With a single set of rules to abide
Our jurisdiction no longer us divides
We're doing fine....we moved the line

With apologies to Johnny Cash!
