Lyrics to “The Great Minnesota Get Together”

Oh I love the State Fair

It’s my favorite twelve days of the year

I love the 

Agriculture, horticulture, princess carved in butter sculptures

Midway, Kidway, horses eating bails of hay

mini donuts, filled up guts, roasted nuts and rescue mutts, tiny little animal butts

I love the cops on horses, twirling torches, adventure park G-forces

Cuz its the great Minnesota get together

yeah it’s the great Minnesota get together

I love the toddlers crying, people buying, cheese curd frying, animals sighing, 

art building, ice cream chilling, bug killing, pie filling

even with the new food craze, we know sweet Martha’s gettin’ paid!

MNDot snowplow, sham wow, baby sow, eat more chow, 

crop art how, blue ribbon, wow, holy cow, take a bow

cuz its the great Minnesota get together

yeah it’s the great Minnesota get together

I love the Midway rides, yellow slide, sunburnt back-sides

everything is deep fried, everyone has big eyes

big green pickles, cop car whistles, butterfly tickles

machinery hill, ye olde mill! ye olde mill! ye olde Mill!

Cuz its the great Minnesota get together

yeah it’s the great minnesota get together

Do you know how many things there are on a stick?

Well there are pronto pups, ice cream cups, alligator sausage

 tater-tot hot-dish, candy bars and ostrich

corn dog, nut roll, scotch eggs and pickles

mashed potatoes, onions fried, cotton candy, key lime pie

pretzel dog and egg roll, cheese cake, cookie dough

Belgian waffles, strawberries, lobster and bologna

caramel apple, mac and cheese, big fat bacon

brings me to my knees

I love the grandstand, marching band

give em a hand, I demand

fish and chips, RV trips, baby chics, milk on lips

get your name on a brick, haunted house crypts

fried food fix, and the quilts are all stitched

watch the news, fireworks and the grandstand music

go home, do it again the next day, you can do it

it’s the great Minnesota get together

yeah it’s the great Minnesota get together

said it’s the great Minnesota get together

STATE FAIR!
