Here's what the New Hope-Lambertville bridge over the Delaware looks like....

New Hope, PA is the birthplace of Ween. Both Dean (Mickey Melchiondo) and Gene (Aaron Freeman) Ween grew up in it's brownish breeding ground. New Hope is a scenic river town, with the Delaware River gently separating it and Lambertville, NJ.
During the weekends, New Hope becomes a tourist destination where people ride along the river on horse carriages, mule-barge rides on the canal, ferry boats and bicycles- you name it. Somewhat idyllic, but...
(Dean Ween:) "...when you grow up in a town like that, you become fucking bitter. It's like people who live at the beach year-round, and all the summer tourists come in."
"So I was with Guy (Heller, of the Moistboyz) one day and we're walking across the bridge and we're seeing all this shit: people eating ice cream and it's so ugly. Guy's like, "Man, I just wish I had a fuckin' megaphone. I'd like to fuckin' make an announcement and say, 'AIDS!, HIV! Cancer!'...so I turned it into a song."
