Dirty Old Town (LP版) - David Byrne

Well there are sixteen people in Danny's apartment

 

Sixteen people are living in there

Remember the days of rent control

 

Grandpa remembers rock and roll

These days won't last forever

These days won't last for long

 

You know somebody somewhere owes us a favor

 

That's how things really get done

In this world of opportunities it's a land of possibilities

 

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Building it up tearing us down

With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground

 

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Dirty old town

 

Now when the ladies come from Kansas

 

They wear their traditional colors

 

Today the fabrics are ragged and torn

The clothes on their backs is all that they own

They say don't draw attention to yourself

They'll tear you apart for a couple of bucks

 

Keep you head down and keep you nose clean

Cause people who're scared do dangerous things

These days can't last forever

 

These days can't last for long

 

You know someday thinking's get better

Somehow thinking's get done

In this world of possibilities it's the land of opportunities

 

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Building it up tearing us down

With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground

 

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Dirty old town

 

These days shoes are worn only on special occasions

 

Battles are fought for family and nations

Maybe you'll pray but god isn't home

And there's no guarantee that justice be done

 

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Building it up tearing us down

With our head in the clouds and our feet on the ground

We wanna live in a dirty old town

 

Dirty old town
