Welcome to Florida

Welcome to Florida, plenty to see
theme parks and beaches, pretty palm trees
we have some secrets we don’t advertise,
our dirty laundry, our dirty lies

No it’s not bed bugs, no it’s far worse
our epidemics are some doctors curse
they open pill mills , they destroy lives
some locals daughters will never be wives

They run cash businesses
they rob our state
once you meet them
it will be unknown fate

Little blue pills just as blue as our sky
take one of them and you to may die.
pick up a paper, you’re bound to see
one of our children dead from an OD

We don’t want you to know about this fleet
your family could go home not as complete.

This is my warning about this drug
everyone please give your child a hug
our local government needs to get tough
frankly I’m tired of writing this stuff.
