Fly-Over Zone

Plane Landing

East coast, west coast, the populous places

Places in the middle, fly-over zone

Fly-over zone, the name not very kind

Kind who are thinking, they’re God’s gift alone

.

Don’t want to be known

As a Fly-over zone

.

Arrogant coasts with self-serving power

Power corrupting and making them blind

Blind to the fact there’s talent everywhere

Everywhere people hard working and kind

.

They shouldn’t be known

As the Fly-over Zone

.

Do the fat-cats and moguls even care?

Care there’s more than deserts and forests there?

There in the middle? They’re hardly aware!

Aware there’s knowledge and plenty clean air

.

Let it be known

Not a Fly-over zone

.

People are healthy and work very hard

Hard working, with ethics and high standards

Standards of quality, feelings of pride

Pride in accomplishments, deeds and words

.

Is that how they should be Known?

Known as a Fly-over zone?

.

Industry founders found, if you like

Like those who first invented computers

Computer programs, medical gadgets

Gadgets helping all kinds of commuters

.

Entrepreneurs are known

In that Fly-over zone

.

Steel, lumber, wheat, supports the whole nation

Airports, railways, waterways, truckers, cars

And aeronautical engineering creation

Who do you think supports those coastal Tsars?

.

Let it be known!

That’s your Fly-over zone!

.

Fly-over zone, you please just forget it

It’s not the way that we’d like to be known

Known for a negative, I just say No

No such thing as a Fly-over zone

.

The Fly-over zone,

This Fly-over zone

Don’t want to be known

As Fly-over zone
