If asked to describe this place I call home
I could start with the beauty of the capitol dome
I could explain that it’s named for the fourth president
Or that Frank Lloyd Wright was once resident
I could say it’s the capital of the Dairy State
But none of that would tell you what makes it so great …

‘Cause Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, whoa-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude

It’s the ghost of the Sixties that you just can’t shake
It’s the Statue of Liberty sunk in the lake
It’s a graduate’s laughter and tear-gas tears
It’s a Rose Bowl win after thirty years

Oh, Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, whoa-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude

Well, it’s a coffeehouse ballad that makes’ the winter warm
It’s your very first lover at the Lake Shore Dorms
It’s an evening with friends on the Union Terrace
There’s just nothing cooler this side of Paris

Oh, Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, whoa-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude

[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]

Oh, Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, whoa-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude

Where Robert La Follette once strode down State
The next generation now roller skates
I only hope the more times change
That this place stays just a little strange

‘Cause, Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, whoa-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude, la-la la-la-la-la
Madison’s not a town, it’s an attitude
