She drove a blue car around Bloomington
She was a thin girl but she had substance
She said that most girls who come to Bloomington
Only come here to find husbands

The existence of God was confirmed
By the way she unfolded herself alongside
And I tried to harden my heart
But she wouldn't let me, she wouldn't let me

Oh oh Bloomington, Bloomington
When the rest of the world is over and done
Oh oh you'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington

In a park that doubled as a parking lot
There was music it was free
Oh the girl in pink took a sip of my drink
And laid down next to me

Yeah the way she unfolded herself
Was an earthquake a hurricane tidal wave flood
This is love baby this is love
The moment she let me, the moment she let me

Oh Bloomington, Bloomington
When the rest of the world is over and done
Oh oh you'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington

She drove a blue car around Bloomington
She was a thin girl but she had substance
She said that most girls who come to Bloomington
Only come here to find husbands

Bloomington, Bloomington
When the rest of the world is over and done
Oh oh you'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington

She drove a blue car around Bloomington
She was a thin girl but she had substance
She said that most girls who come to Bloomington
Only come here to find husbands

Bloomington, Bloomington
When the rest of the world is over and done
Oh oh you'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington

Bloomington, Bloomington
When the rest of the world is over and done
You'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington
You'll still be the only one
I'll ever love Bloomington
