Lyrics by Nathan Cox, Copyrighted, please don't reuse without permission.

Yeah, yeah I'm on that Holly Street, Now I'm down at Railroad
Right next to Ryan Stiles, The Upfront forever
I'm the new Dirty Dan, Yeah he used to smuggle beer
and since he made it here, Boundary Bay makes it here(Scotch Ale!)

I used to go to Western, All my fellow Vikings
Right there up on High Street, Dreamed of what I might be
Dropped into my hot spot, 1211 State Street
Hot Russian dumplings, that's what they make me(Two Meats!)

Over to mi casa, Hombre que pasa
Potatos and tequila, Celebrate La Raza(Potato Burrito!)
Me, I'm at the Fairhaven, Tunes by Seamus
Rockin karaoke mics, Feelin' like I'm famous

Say what up to Nightlight, Damn you put up a fight
Now where's 80's night, 3B used to do it right
The Royal full of douchebags, Polos make me wanna gag
Know what I'm gonna do, Meet me at the Horseshoe...

...In Bellingham, (Get me some of them cheese fries baby)the city of subdued excitement
Our streets keep you spellbound, Now you're in Bellingham
We're at the top of the Puget Sound, Here everything's going down
Let's hear it for B-ham, B-ham, B-ham

Catch me up at Baker with the Boarders smokin halfpipes
Ski to Sea, finish line, All the teams getting hyped
Take my girl down for a walk on the Boulevard
What up to my people up on Texas where they live hard

Welcome to the West Coast, Sucka you can catch a jab
Try and act tough, You'll be leavin' in a Death Cab
Red Line, Blue Line, Sober Rovers, Holla back(WTA)
Mall full of Canadians, Cleanin out the Macy's racks

Down at the docks, You can catch a ferry
Hittin' up Haggen for some Edaleen Dairy(MILK)
Donuts at LaFeen's on my way out to the lake
Stop in at The Woods for a mocha and some cake

At Whatcom Falls, you can join us cliff jumpin'
K-U-G-S always keeps the tunes bumpin'
Lemme hear the locals sing, Long Live Chuckanut
Long Live the Samish Twin, I'm from the Evergreen State that's...

..In Bellingham, the city of subdued excitement
Our streets keep you spellbound(Big ups to El Capitan's), Now you're in Bellingham(Mallard's too)
We're at the top of the Puget Sound, Here everything's going down(Two scoops)
Let's hear it for B-ham, B-ham, B-ham

Sun is blindin' but only in the summer
Everybody's eco conscious, You'll never see a Hummer
One with the earth, Runnin' arboretum trails
Yo I gotta bring a snack, Baker's cookies never fail

You can join the in crowd, The hipster style
So many scarves and tights, You'll never see some skin out
American Apparel, They quote some Lewis Carroll
Everywhere I've been, The city's filled with them

Want some entertainment? Hit the Wild Buffalo
Or outside of Everyday, You can meet a Juggalo
At the Pickford all the films make the crowds roar
Big ups to my people who compete in Trailer Wars

Came here for school, Now I'm livin' up the good life
Mountains, Ocean, City got me feelin' right
Love for anyone that's in the Northwest
But the throne of Whatcom County is the absolute best

..In Bellingham, the city of subdued excitement
Our streets keep you spellbound, Now you're in Bellingham
We're at the top of the Puget Sound, Here everything's going down
Let's hear it for B-ham, B-ham, B-ham

One hand in the air for the small city
Rainfall on the streets all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your coffee in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

..In Bellingham, the city of subdued excitement
Our streets keep you spellbound, Now you're in Bellingham
We're at the top of the Puget Sound, Here everything's going down
Let's hear it for B-ham, B-ham, B-ham
