The Traveling Idiosyncrasies

[Readers: sing along after listening to the theme song from The Beverly Hillbillies, here:

Come and listen to my story ‘bout a family from Japan
  an office guy from Canada, three ladies in his clan. 
Then one day company said it’s time to move 
  and so they up and went to learn the Tennessee groove.

Nashville, that is. Country music and lemon tea.

Soon their stuff all made it there, provoking such a grin
  family n' friends said “now we know where you are livin’.”
We’re set up in a place with lots of space and plenty trees
  and some kinfolk have ventured down for a look-see.

Franklin, that is. Suburbs and BBQ.

We been here half a year and I dig the job I’m in
  and we also thank the schools for lettin’ our sprogs in.
Slow, fine  livin’ is everywhere in this locality
  we love the local quirks and charm and hospitality.

Green space, that is. Interstates and  SUVs.

Boy, You need to get your termnology straight!
In the South there is only tea, and that stuff that Yankees drink.
Tea has sugar and ice; the other stuff usually don't have sugar and is sometimes hot!!
