You might be mothballed in Martinez
And in Lodi, lord you can get stuck
But if you live in Stockton
Friend, you're really out of luck

Stockton, where the sun shines
On foreclosed homes and violent crime
Unemployment is on the rise
Modesto looks like a paradise
They used call it Mudville
And Gas City back in the day
Now it's called The Most Miserable City in the USA

Stockton, the first town, it's true
To have a George W. Bush Elementary School
Where books are new 'cause they're never read
And I'm sure they wouldn't teach sex ed

Stockton, where the sun shines
On foreclosed homes and violent crime
Unemployment is on the rise
Fresno looks like a paradise
They used call it Mudville
And Gas City back in the day
Now it's called The Most Miserable City in the USA

BR
Cars and guns -- Stockton
feed and live -- Stockton
over head -- Stockton
laughing -- Stockton

Stockton, where the sun shines
On foreclosed homes and violent crime
Unemployment is on the rise
Detroit looks like a paradise
They used call it Mudville
And Gas City back in the day
Now it's called The Most Miserable City in the USA
