“I was eight years old and running with a dime in my hand
Into the bus stop to pick up a paper for my old man
I'd sit on his lap in that big old Buick
And steer as we drove through town
He'd tousle my hair and say "Son, take a good look around
This is your hometown."

HAUTS LES MAINS - CLUB MED

This song is not about any one specific place, but many! IIRC it was adopted as the official song of all the Club Meds in the Western Hemisphere. 

P.S: My guess is that just about everyone is that video is stoned on something or other.... jrSmiley_9_smiley_image.gif .
