"The problem is all inside your head", Lucca said to me
The answer is easy if you take it logically
I'd like to help become Ames free
There must be fifty ways to leave the Cyclones

Wes Johnson said it's really not my habit to intrude
Furthermore, I hope my meaning won't be lost or misconstrued
But I'll repeat myself, at the risk of being crude
There must be fifty ways to leave Ames Iowa
Fifty ways to leave the Cyclones

You just slip out the back, Mac
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free


Adam Haluska said it grieves me so to see Mac in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again
Mac said I appreciate that and would you please explain
About the fifty ways


You just slip out the back, Mac
Make a new plan, Stan
You don't need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don't need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free
