don’t you know that it’s insane?
Don’t you want to get out of Cape Cod?
out of Cape Cod tonight

Mystic Seaport
is that that way
Don't you know
that your life could be lost?
out of Cape Cod tonight

the bottleneck is a shit-show
Hyannis Port is a ghetto
out of Cape Cod tonight

The lobster’s claw
is sharp as knives
Evil feasts
on human lives
The Holy Roman Empire
roots for you

all the way to New Jersey
All the way to the Garden State
out of Cape Cod tonight

fuck the women from Wellfleet
Fuck the bears out in Provincetown
Heed my words and take flight

if you can’t find the mayor
Then you must be the mayor
Ruling Cape Cod tonight
