Lyrics

 

Yeah, uh-huh

I was walking down the street the other day
A woman stopped me
She said, "Why is it you look so down in the mouth?"
And I told her

This is a burnt out town
It's full of dirty looks
There's ashes on main street
And the mayor is cooking the books

Why, even my best friends
Are turning into crooks

Yeah this is a burnt out town
New Emperor, same clothes
They're dancing on the glass ceilings
While the filthy money flows

Yes, and here I am stealing gas
With a garden hose

Aw, look out now...

This is a burnt out town
The city fathers have come to blows
It's out of their realm of reality
The truth's indecent when exposed

Yeah, it's a burnt out town
It's going down but no one knows
Yeah, it's a burnt out town
Ain't dead but getting close
