Free thinkers
Well wishers
Big Dreamers
In Lawrence Kansas
Open to
Everyone
Too much fun
In Lawrence Kansas
Weird and proud
Beards abound
All allowed
In Lawrence Kansas
Small city
Hills pretty
They’re gritty
In Lawrence Kansas

Left leaning
Well meaning
A rousing
History
Brazenly
Quite quirky
Well-informed
Quite worldly

It’s Lawrence Kansas

The city where basketball is an official religion
It’s that strange blue island in a vast sea of redness
Tumultuous history, destroyed and rebuilt again
In the name of ending slavery some founders bled

You can hear the Greeks drunk down on Kentucky
And the buskers singing over on Mass Street
Hipsters trying to headbang at the Replay
Don’t forget the cult flicks down at Liberty

Free thinkers
Well wishers
Big Dreamers
In Lawrence Kansas
Open to
Everyone
Too much fun
In Lawrence Kansas
Weird and proud
Beards abound
All allowed
In Lawrence Kansas
Small city
Hills pretty
They’re gritty
In Lawrence Kansas

Left leaning
Well meaning
A rousing
History
Brazenly
Quite quirky
Well-informed
Quite worldly

It’s Lawrence Kansas

Students up all night long down at the Java Break
Events shutting down streets most days of the week
KJHK’s still trying to scare your grandma
At the library, record your bad poetry for free

Where it’s easy to support the local scene
‘Cause the locals won’t just get out of the streets

Free thinkers
Well wishers
Big Dreamers
In Lawrence Kansas
Open to
Everyone
Too much fun
In Lawrence Kansas
Weird and proud
Beards abound
All allowed
In Lawrence Kansas
Small city
Hills pretty
They’re gritty
Left leaning
Well meaning
A rousing
History
Quite quirky
Well-informed
Quite worldly

It’s Lawrence Kansas
