ONLY IN BOULDER
(apologies to Roy Orbison's "Only the Lonely")


Dumb dumb dumb really dumb
Way way way way out
Woe woe woe woe is us...only in Boulder

Only in Boulder
The liberal dream has gone astray
Only in Boulder
A paradise that's slipped away

A little girl's murder
A riot or two
Confused city leaders
Just don't know what to do

Only in Boulder
Key evidence
Is shared with the prime suspects

Dumb dumb dumb really dumb
Way way way way out
Woe woe woe woe is us...Only in Boulder

Only in Boulder
And the mayor doesn't want to know
Only in Boulder
They let the prime suspects go

There goes John Ramsey
And Patsy too
Fled to Atlanta
Hey, wouldn't you?

You can fight city hall
If you're rich and you're white
Only in Boulder

Dumb dumb dumb really dumb
