**  Put Me Off At Redlands  **

Put me off at Redlands for no other place will do.
The distance is a short ten miles from Bustling San Berdoo,
The place is nestled on the hill beneath fair Smiley Heights,
Its glories are spread far and near with rapturous delight

                                                       Chorus:
Redlands, Redlands, fairest of the fair,
Redlands, Redlands, place without compare;
Come and join the joyous, happy band,
In the merry charming sunny land.

Put me off at Redlands where the flowers yearly grow,
Among the homes of happy folk with comforts rare galore,
Where earthly pleasures do about, I cannot ask for more.

Put me off at Redlands where the blossoms from the trees,
Produced by matchless climate, what sweet perfume to the breeze;
The days and years pass swiftly by to all who there doth well,
A home in dear old Redlands will obtain a magic spell.

Put me off at Redlands where the gentle zephyrs blow,
In reach of mountain ranges where I dearly love to go;
There is no place beneath the sky, with pleasures quite do grand,
Come, join the throng and go with me, then you will understand.
