Livin’ la Vida Utah

RICKY MARTIN: Eric D. Snider

She’s into Mormonism,
Gardening and the Utah Jazz.
Her boyfriend’s on a mission,
His picture’s all she has.

Her church is around the corner:
She could walk, but she always drives.
Her neighbors are all Mormon —
She’s never seen a non-member alive.

She’ll never even kiss you ’til you’ve been married a year.
She won’t drink tea or coffee — or even Barq’s Root Beer
‘Cause it has caffeine, she hears!

My heck!
She is LDS
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.
Her house is a mess
Livin’ la vida Utah.
She makes green Jell-O,
And into it she puts fruit-a.
She’s sweet and mellow,
Livin’ la vida Utah.
You’re livin’ la vida Utah.
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.

Took her to Salt Lake City
To see the lights on Temple Square.
I asked her if she would marry me,
She took the ring and just left me there.

She’ll never do polygamy, she wants to be the only wife,
She’ll stay at home and watch the kids and watch “Days of Our Lives,”
And be adviser for the Beehives!

My heck!
She has spiritual strength
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.
Her shorts are knee-length
Livin’ la vida Utah.
She does genealogy,
It’s all stored on her computah.
Gosh oh golly gee
Livin’ la vida Utah.
You’re livin’ la vida Utah.
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.

She went to BYU so she could find a man to wed.
But she had to have a major to kill time while she hunted
So she took elementary ed.

My heck!
Her skin’s light, not dark
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.
She’s from Spanish Fark
Livin’ la vida Utah.
She gossips in Relief Society
About who is dating who-a
She’s the model of piety,
Livin’ la vida Utah
Nothing can cure it
Livin’ la vida Utah
She has a sweet spirit
Livin’ la vida Utah

She thinks she’s an eight-cow wife,
When she’s really more like two-a.
I’ve loved her all my life,
Livin’ la vida Utah.
You’re livin’ la vida Utah.
She’s livin’ la vida Utah.
Livin’ la vida Utah.

A gotta, gotta, gotta la vida Utah.
Gotta, gotta, gotta la vi—
