Portland AKA's - Also Known As...

The Portland Song by Jewel - June 25, 2010 - Oregon Zoo

In the Willamette valley
With the Willamette river running through

Two men flipped a coin and the Portland penny into the air flew

All kinds came to this town
Outdoorsmen, outlaws, businessmen and hippies

They each had their own pet name for their favorite city

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city

But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me

America's greenest city
Where diverse cultures still get along today
Drag queens, cowboys, straights and gays

There's bullriding here but also world naked bike ride day

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city

But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me

There are gastropubs and trailblazers and museums and the Max Light Rail
And a million microbreweries and lots of hiking trails and chinese garden
An aerial tram and lots of shopping and DYI, Youth Culture too
And lots of churches too where preachers all pray for us
But there's more stripclubs per capita than Las Vegas

But by far my favorite thing to do is visit the zoo

You may call it Stumptown, Bridgetown, Rip City, Little Beirut, Beervana, Beertown, PDX or Soccer city
But Portland, Oregon will always be the City of Roses to me
Yeah the City of Roses to me
