Lyrics:"Returning To The U.S."
|"Returning To The U.S."|
|By: They Might Be Giants|
From the Venue Songs DVD: Returning once again to the United States, They Might Be Giants enters the Old Dominion, Charlottesville, Virginia. Here, Thomas Jefferson founded the University Of Virginia, and built his magnificent bat cave, Monticello, where he made sweet love to Sally Hemings. Moved by the aesthetic brilliance and the enlightenment ideals of America's third president, They Might Be Giants creates a song for the Starr Hill Music Hall that is steeped in history.
Alternate version: Returning once again to the United States, They Might Be Giants enters the Old Dominion, Charlottesville, VA. Despite being "pigeonholed" by "critics" as "Brooklyn-based", true rock historians know well the band's earliest beginnings as the hard-drinking, Southern-fried sound engineers for the third lead guitarist in the boogie rock band .38 Special. At the Starr Hill Music Hall, They Might Be Giants finally has a chance to put on their imaginary buckskin jumpsuits, let down their imaginary waist-long hair, and imaginarily rock it the way they imagined they once did.
