WELL THIS TOWN
IT'S A GOOD TOWN
BUT I MUST ADMIT, I'VE SEEN THINGS TUMBLE DOWN
'N WHEN IT GOES, THEY SAY DR. SAVE US ALL
WE WAS RIDIN' TO THE TOP & WE NEVER HEARD THE ENGINES STALL
NOW WE'RE STUCK IN THIS TOWN, WOAH - OHHHH!
THIS TOWN'S A SLEEPIN' GIANT, DON'T YOU GET SO CLOSE
THIS TOWN, EAT YOU UP ~ SPIT YOU RIGHT BACK OUT
LIKE AN OVERDOSE
SO DOCTOR SAVE US ALL
WE WAS RIDIN TO THE TOP
'N WE NEVER HEARD THE ENGINE STALL
IS A TAKE YOU UP TOWN
AND THIS TOWN, GONNA DRAG YOU RIGHT BACK DOWN
YOU THINK IT WOULD BE BETTER? MAYBE I COULD GO BACK HOME
TAKE MY GIRL 'N MY DOG & TAKE IT EASY
GET AWAY FROM IT ALL...
AWAY FROM IT ALL
TAKE ME FROM THIS TOWN
WOAH - OHHHH!
