Seeking info on the "Hackensack" song

Greetings Mailbag Specialists! There's a song with the line "if you ever get back to Hackensack..." do you know what the song is or who sings it?

Curiously yours,

Minneapolis, MN

Dear Marina, we know both.

The song you're looking for is cleverly entitled "Hackensack". It's by Fountains of Wayne, from their CD Welcome Interstate Managers. You can purchase it on the Public Radio Music Source, which you will find here.
