Movin' to Montana ...

We've probably all heard a hundred songs with Montana lyrics in them by now ... but for most of us the ones that stick are the ones we remember from our youth. And though a little part of me hates to admit it, Frank Zappa's "Montana" is definitely one of those songs for me.

Right before my first summer job in Glacier Park I was attending college in Utah, of all places ... and when I started telling people where I was going I received a long string of snarky comments about dental-floss ranching in return. I had absolutely no idea what they were talking about at first -- bit I did before long.
I might be movin' to Montana soon
Just to raise me up a crop of
Dental Floss

Raisin' it up
Waxen it down
In a little white box
I can sell uptown

By myself I wouldn't
Have no boss,
But I'd be raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss

Raisin' my lonely
Dental Floss
