A song about the Pacific Northwest

lyrics

We’re so happy that you want to stay
But our city’s full please go away
We don’t want to turn away your kind
So come anyway, I guess we won’t mind

We know what you’ve seen on the TV
How we live our lives totally fancy free
But you really ought to know
Portlandia is just a show

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR

So you live here now, you want a job?
I guess that’s cool - you’re not a slob
You could work at a restaurant
If that is the kind of job you want

What’s that you say? You have a degree?
A master’s in sustainability?
That’s really great, but you oughta know
I just got mine an hour ago

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR

I guess we can’t talk you out of it
So welcome to Portland, We Give A Shit™
What’s that you say, you love the sky so blue?
Well I guess I’ve got some news for you…

We are passive, and aggressive
Sacred bike rights often start fights
But we all drive, when you arrive
We say you'll never need a car

We have hipsters - Silly tricksters
We’re ironic - Catatonic
Brew our own beer, but please don’t fear
‘Cause there’s always PBR
And there’s always PBR
And there’s always PBR
