Video: ‘You Athol’ song pays tribute to 50 Mass. towns
A music video by a Massachusetts father son duo puts a creative spin on 50 Bay State town names.
“The Massachusetts Song (You Athol),” performed by Dana and Jaiden Edelman, was posted on YouTube in November, telling a nonsensical yet hilarious tale.
The chorus alone mentions seven Massachusetts towns:”You’re a Taunton Falmouth Buzzard/Ware’d the Ham go from my Sandwich/you’ve got Marbles in your Head, you Athol.”
Other lyrics include: “Well you don’t Needham/he’s not Sterling/Stoneham, Hingham, Newbury him in the Hull,” and “You were Bourne with Mashpees for a Brain…tree.”
