Smile America!

Let me tell you about my three friends: Zach, Brie, and Jim. Last weekend they left on road trip. They started at my apartment in St. Stephen and are driving to Zach’s house in Kelowna, BC through the United States. With their little red car “Roadkill” they are “making America smile one state at a time.”…Hence the name of their trip “Smile America.”  Here are the lyrics to their theme song:

America you’ve been lookin’ hurt
Hard times and oil machines have got you lookin’ down

 I know it’s hard to be on top
When your king of the castle you’re all you’ve got
Its damn lonely, we’re here to make it right
’cause its smile smile smile America
Smile America!
Yeah it’s smile smile smile America
Makin’ you happy, one state at a time.

Big ole George he’s got you pinned down
But its not ‘Nam you can turn it around
With a little help from a friend,
Maybe three: jim, zach and brie
We’re not what you expect
Winnipeg, Maine, and Vancouverette
We’ll make it right, one state at a time
’cause it’s Smile Smile Smile America
Smile America!
Yeah it’s Smile Smile Smile America
Makin’ you happy, one state at a time.

Check out their road trip blog (Smile America) that’s linked under my “blogroll” to the right.  Some call this a mission trip, others a desperate attempt to save a sinking ship, but either way….there’s hope for America yet!!

Good luck guys!
