I'm gonna tell you a story
I'm gonna tell you about my town
I'm gonna tell you a big bad story, baby
Aww, it's all about my town

Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, fuggers, and thieves
Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home
Frustrated women
Have to be in by twelve oclock
But I'm wishin and a-hopin, oh
That just once those doors werent locked I like to save time for
My baby to walk around
Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home

Because I love that dirty water
Oh, oh, Boston, you're my home

Well, I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
I love that dirty water
