Pocono (Beach Boys parody)

In Wilkes-Barre, PA
there's a track called Pocono.
That's where I put my money
straight through the window.

...I won about a grand.
Winning tickets fill up my hand.
We'll be jumping and shouting
while we watch the races from the grandstand.
Way up in Pocono.

Exacta, Trifecta.
Oooh, I wanna bet ya to win, place, show.
Pocono is where I want to go
to place all of my wagers.
Bet fillies and the mares up in Pocono.
We'll win big fast,
then count our money slow.
That's where we want to go.
Way up in Pocono.

The sulkies are bulky. Order of finish chalky.

We'll have a boatload of fun
during our stay at Mohegan Sun.
The laughs just may never end
while hanging out at the comedy club.

Under the moonlight
we'll watch the race while gripping our tickets tight.
A savage look in my eye,
I experience an adrenaline high.
way up in Pocono.

Exacta, Trifecta.
Oooh, I wanna bet ya to win, place, show.
Pocono is where I want to go
to place all of my wagers.
Bet fillies and the mares up in Pocono.
We'll win big fast,
then count our money slow.
That's where we want to go.
Way up in Pocono.

Win, place, show. No, I can't wait to go.

An incredible feeling flows through my veins
when the driver grabs hold of the reigns.
You hear the hooves pound against the track.
Feel chills run down your back
when you hold a winning ticket.

Racing fans all know
it's fun to wager on Pocono.
Now if you want to go and
play the ponies, you know,
you should bet Pocono.
