'Minnesota Gurls' gone wild
The latest Minnesota meme to hit YouTube is a local parody of Katy Perry's hit "California Gurls," called "Minnesota Gurls." The song was penned by a group of kids from Fridley who go by the name Dime and Peppimoo (with help from their pals Cookie and Twizzler), and since it was posted at the beginning of last month it has garnered almost a million views on YouTube.
Watch the video -- and check out the ladies' cute Minnesota-centric lyrics -- below.
Dime: I know a place, with summer, winter, spring and autumn.
Ten thousand lakes, finding a beach is not a problem.
Chewing lutefisk, lying underneath the pine trees.
Lumberjacks, bust their axe, trying to creep a little sneak peek (at us)
Bridge (Peppimoo): You can travel the world, but nothing comes close to a Grain Belt toast.
Once you angle with us, you'll be falling in love.
Chorus: Minnesota gurls we're unforgettable, waterproof boots with flannel on top.
Wind chaffed skin will turn your legs to popsicles, ooooo.
Minnesota gurls, our spam is fryable, farm fresh fun, we're working every block.
Midwest represent now zip your jackets up. ooooooo.
Dime: Stars in the sky, instead of only on the sidewalks.
We jam, in our van. Prince is on the stereo.
Cookie: Spray on tan, now we ready.
Need a shovel this snow is heavy.
Uf dah, the big midwest.
These are the girls I love the best.
I met her at Lake Wobegon.
34 degrees, but no coat was on.
She's a hometown girl.
We went to Valleyfair, did the Tilt-a-Wirl.
On to Mall of America, California dude would you please stop starin brah?
Or keep on staring on to Target Field.
Ask Joe Mauer, these 'burns are real.
Outside ball, we're hangin' out,
We'll play through hail without a doubt.
You've got the Lakers, we've got the Wolves.
That comparison was terrible.
I regret that line, I'll take it back.
I'm Paul Bunyan, check out my axe.
I'm a real man's man, I just wanna show ya, cuz your representing Minnesnowta.
Twizzler: Minnesota, Minnesota Gurls X2
