Lazy Scranton is a song that appears in The Merger. It was used as an orientation video for the newly tranferred employees. It is based on a popular song from Saturday Night Live, Lazy Sunday.

LyricsEdit

Sittin’ in my office with a plate of grilled bacon,
Call my man Dwight just to see what was shakin’

Yo Mike, our town is dope and pretty
So check out how we live in the Electric City!

They call it Scranton
What?
The Electric City
Scranton
What?
The Electric City

Lazy Scranton the Electric City
They call it that ’cause of the electricity

The city’s laid out from east to west
And our public parks and libraries are truly the best

Call poison control if you’re bit by a spider
But check that it’s covered by your health care provider!

Are you hungry? Well quit your whining
The new downtown has five-star dining

You lack coal mines and you wanna see ‘em,
Well, check it out, yo, the Anthracite Museum!

The dope thing to do, that’s several and counting
The illest place to go is Montage Mountain

Plenty of space in the parking lot,
But the little cars go in the compact spot
Spot, spot, spot, spot …

Snack attack time, don’t lose your head
We like Cugino’s for the tasty bread

They call it Scranton
What?
The Electric City
Scranton
What?
The Electric City
Scranton
What?
The Electric City
Scranton
What?
The Electric City

Note: Italics denote lyrics that were not included in the original scene from The Merger, but were included in the full version included in the Overtime shorts collection DVD and elsewhere. Reruns of the original episode still use the shortened version.

Amusing DetailsEdit

  • When Michael points from "east to west" he points in the wrong directions.
  • Some scenes, such as the Anthracite Museum and Scranton sign, were obviously filmed on a greenscreen to give a "cheap home movie" effect.
  • The "electric city sign" is later referenced in Sabre as part of Andy and Erin's welcome song for Gabe.
