I Wasn’t Even Aware

…we were having a contest.

3 finalists named for state song, Floridians now will vote
…- “Florida My Home,” music by Carl Ashley, of Boynton Beach, and lyrics by Betsy Dixon, Lantana, including “Moonlight on the Suwanee River, Turns the waters silv’ry bright. … Fair wins blowing, Flowers glowing, This is Florida, my home!”
– “My Florida Home,” music and lyrics by Christopher Marshall, Orlando. The lyrics include “So many travelers arriving before me, Left behind tyranny, poverty, pain …, Land of the sunshine, by flowers defined.”
– “Florida (Where the Sawgrass Meets the Sky),” music and lyrics by Jan Hinton, of Pompano Beach. The lyrics include “Mocking birds cry and ‘gators lie out in the sun. Bridges span southward to the Keys and rockets skyward run.”

  1. John says:

    Oh give me a home where the crocodiles roam…

  2. John says:

    …Round the gators and pythons at play.
    And seldom is heard, a discouraging word,
    About NASA’s cost overrun ways…

    Second verse:
    Oh give me a home where developers roam
    Round the Mouse and his minions at play
    And never is heard the discouraging words
    That the folks with the FEMA roofs say…
    Haven’t thought of a chorus yet.

  4. John says:

    Oh let me to roam in the Crackers’ old home,
    Where the shotgun keeps Yankees at bay.
    And the Miami thugs still peddle their drugs,
    While the Cubans plot Castro’s last days.
    OK, is there anyone in your fine state I haven’t offended?

  5. I hear “Born on the Bayou” is still up for consideration.
