Baltimore, My Baltimore lyrics
Saturday, October 13, 2007

Baltimore, Baltimore
Lying near the Eastern Shore
Not Washington or New York
Baltimore My Baltimore

Camden Yards, Pimlico
Little houses in a row
Home of Edgar Allan Poe
Baltimore my Baltimore

Baltimore on the Bay
Crabs fried or sauteed
Life is just a big buffet
Baltimore, my Baltimore

Gimme a plate of steamed crabs
A pair of pliers and a mallet perhaps
With a napkin cross our laps
Baltimore my Baltimore

It's the city of crustaceans
Fifty different combinations
Baltimore's crustacean nation
Baltimore my Baltimore

Waiting for the oyster truck
Hose em down and get em shucked
Toss the shells on the rug
Baltimore my Baltimore

Let's go to Fells Point
Dive bars and breakfast joints
The omelets do not disappoint
In Baltimore my Baltimore

Babe Ruth's birthplace is near
John Waters made his career
Anne Tyler she lives here
Baltimore my Baltimore

Climb the hill on Charles Street
Hear an autumn melody
From the Peabody Conservatry
Baltimore my Baltimore

Mount Vernon, Federal Hill
Looking for a corner grill
Need some crab, I'm hungry still
Baltimore my Baltimore
