歌詞

Allentown (Live) - Billy Joel (比利·喬爾)

Well we're living here in Allentown

 

And they're closing all the factories down

 

Out in Bethlehem they're killing time

Filling out forms

Standing in line

Well our fathers fought the Second World War

 

Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore

 

Met our mothers in the USO

Asked them to dance

Danced with them slow

And we're living here in Allentown

 

But the restlessness was handed down

 

And it's getting very hard to stay

 

Well we're waiting here in Allentown

 

For the Pennsylvania we never found

 

For the promises our teachers gave

If we worked hard

If we behaved

So the graduations hang on the wall

 

But they never really helped us at all

 

No they never taught us what was real

Iron and coke

And chromium steel

 

And we're waiting here in Allentown

 

But they've taken all the coal from the ground

 

And the union people crawled away

 

Every child had a pretty good shot

 

To get at least as far as their old man got

 

Something happened on the way to that place

They threw an American flag in our face

 

Well I'm living here in Allentown

And it's hard to keep a good man down

But I won't be getting up today

 

And it's getting very hard to stay

And we're living here in Allentown
