Sweet Betsy From Pike
Oh don't you remember sweet Betsy from Pike,
Who crossed the wide prairie with her lover Ike,
With two yoke of oxen, a big yellow dog,
A tall Shangai rooster, and one spotted hog?
Well Ike and Sweet Betsy attended a dance,
And Ike wore a pair of his Pike County pants ...
I'm not one to overly romanticize the past -- I like living in a world with more flavors of ice cream than strains of smallpox -- but I think we can all agree that the tradition of every county having their own pants should be revived immediately.
That would be so awesome. Just image: me at a party, chillin' with my homies, some young punk in low-riding jeans pimp-rolls over and gets all up in my grill, saying, "yo, what up wit the tan khakis, grampa?" And then I'm all like "best be steppin' -- King County pants repraZENTS!"

Then that must mean I'd be wearing the Cecil county overalls with a rebel flag on the ass pocket (where it belongs, of course)...Hee-Haw!!!|
