    Lyrics

    I'd like to be in biscuit city
    With my banjo in my hand
    I don't need no long vacation
    In some foreign land
    Cause the sound of my own breathing
    Has been turning to a sigh
    I wish that I could make the time
    To be in biscuit city by and by
    Oh the water is of emerald
    And the beach is white as snow
    And everyone's got money
    And no place to go
    In a land of milk and honey
    It can really make you smile
    And if I had a ticket
    I would stay in biscuit city for a while

    All the girls are in bikinis
    All the boys are in the buff
    With the baby in between and
    That makes three of us
    And the streets are all so quiet
    And the walls are squeaky clean
    I think you ain't been nowhere 'til
    The town of biscuit city you have seen

    I'd rather be in biscuit city
    With my banjo in my hand
    Than take a big vacation
    In some foreign land
    Cause the sound of my own breathing
    Has been turning to a sigh
    If it were not for misfortune
    I would be in biscuit city by and by
    If it were not for misfortune
    I would stay in biscuit city 'til I die
