MANTECA
__________________________________

Living in Manteca
A town named after lard
I know it’s hard to believe, it’s hard
There must be some confusion
Mantequilla, mantequilla
Butter, butter, lard
Mantequilla, mantequilla
Butter, butter, lard
Manteca

They’ve torn down the old sugar plant
Blown up the silos too
A monument to industry
An odor thick as glue
Coming down the freeway now
The plant has gone away
I don’t know how you’ll find me
With no smell to guide your way

A town named after lard
I know it’s hard to believe, it’s hard
There must be some confusion
Mantequilla, mantequilla
Butter, butter, lard

It’s hot as hades in July
A swimming pool’s a must
There’s not one shopping mall in town
In Walmart we do trust
We’re living small and simple
We’re raising kids and cows
We have to drive real far to work
But can afford a houze

Dizzy’s got a song he did
That no one here has heard
The lastest movie’s playing, well,
Not here, but that’s the word
We’re not the culture center
Or the fashion capital
But we’ve got a sense of humor
Yeah, we’re laughin’ just a little
