lyrics

PORTLAND CREEP

Bought into the mystique
And now I am a Portland Creep
Used to be seniors on this street
Adios faders, a clean sweep

Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep
Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep

Creative Class up the ass
From dusk till dawn's early seep
I drink until I fall asleep
I wake up and drink,
I'm a Portland Creep!

Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep
Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep

You need hip waders to wade through all these hipsters
Portland Creeps
This town isn't big enough for hundred thousands of us
Portland Creeps
That's why I'm thinking, lately, time for leaving is now
Portland Creep
We'll ride the Max for as far as they're allowed to tax it
Stop Portland Creep, Stop
Portland Creep

Let's move to Clackamas, little cutie
Hang with the Coles--Fred & Toody
But the county can't stand us,
Prices ain't cheap, &
They don't want no Portland Creep

Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep
Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep

Progressive Politics, it don't play
Down Lake No-Negro Way
Albina's as white as Little Bo Peep
Years and years of Portland Creep

Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep
Portland Creep
Portland Creep
Portland...
Creep
