Lyrics

There’s a town named after a fish that’s obsolete
With an interesting bridge on Michigan Street
So interesting in fact that it inspires music
But the problem folks have is that they tend to confuse it with
Two other bridges in town but they’re foolish
The Michigan bridge is the crown jewel it’s
By far compared to those, the most artistic
When they tried to bulldoze it people went ballistic
They wrote songs
And their efforts in the race to save it did
Those other ones
Could never replace their favorite bridge

What does it take to write a song about a bridge?
What does it take to write a song about a bridge?
First you need a bridge
But you got to write about the right bridge
Not the bridge on the left
Wrong bridge, wrong song, move along

Well, what does it take to write a song about a bridge?
What does it take to write a song about a bridge?
That other bridge is wrong. It’s not the right one.
If you find yourself on Oregon
Wrong bridge, wrong song, move along

What does it take to write a song about a bridge?
What does it take to write a song about a bridge?
If you think you’ve found a bridge that works for you
And that bridge is on 57/42
Wrong bridge, wrong song, move along

First you need to know what bridge you’re on
A teenage girl who can sing the song
A hot shot picker who can strum along
And a really good drummer

Oooh, a real good drummer
A real good drummer
Mmmm real good drummer

It’s imperative that it’s that very bridge and
Your coordinates are flawless and most
Of all it’s important to understand
When there’s a lot on the line and the
Life of a bridge is at stake, well what does it take?
You need a really good drummer
Real good drummer
Real good, real good, real good drummer
