Living In A Small Town

Everybody knows their neighbor when they pass by on the street
There isn't any rude behavior, people are polite and sweet
If your values are old fashioned no one's going to put you down
There's nothing more boring than living in a small town

There's spaghetti at the church on Wednesdays and bingo every Friday night
Everybody is God-fearing and they know what's wrong and right
When they opened up the Wal-Mart all the other stores closed down
There's nothing more boring than living in a small town

Now, some people are suspicious, other people like to drink
Some take pills they make themselves at home in the kitchen sink
Other people are suspicious of anyone who's not like them
Oh gee, it's great to be back home again

Where there's ten taverns and two churches, an American Legion hall
There's a one-screen movie theater, no first run ones at all
At night we sit on the porch swing and listen to summer sounds
There's nothing more boring than living in a small town

But the wild flowers are blooming and the lawn is emerald green
And the young folks at the Kwik Trip are on meth amphetamine
They got nothing to do tomorrow, so they might as well hang around
There's nothing more boring than living in a small town
