(poems go here)Growing up southern is a privilege, really
It’s more than fried food and sweet tea,
from the gulf to a pond with water lilies

It’s more than loving football and hating the city,
it’s front porches and simple hospitality
Growing up southern is a privilege, really

In the country you’ll always be busy
Either working all day, or gone fishin’
from the gulf to a pond with water lilies

There’s a sweetness about the south, that you can’t find in the city
nothing about it is the same as another other region
growing up southern is a privilege, really

Southern belles and gentlemen are found easily
the sweetness of the south is everywhere,
from the gulf to a pond with water lilies

No matter where your from down south, as long as it doesn’t get chilly
your memories, friends, and tan will be greater
growing up southern is a privilege, really
from the gulf to a pond with water lilies
