Lyrics

Somebody’s been here before me
This place is full of people like you
They’re coming up with all the answers
They’ve got nothin’ better to do
Pretty people living in the shade
Pretty people think they’ve got it made

Strange little town, something’s going down
But I’m not going back there anymore

Sit around and smell the flowers
Watch them count their blessings by the score
They take the universe to pieces
Heaven knows their names are on the door
Little angels, feeling good inside
Looking peaceful, on feathered wings they glide

Strange little town, so cool and so profound
But I’m not going back there anymore
To that strange little town, something’s going down
Don’t you know I’ve seen it all before

Say you are my long lost friends
Stay with me until the end
Ring me up and tell me on the phone
Disappearing, how she leaves no trace
I get the feeling
I think I know that face

Strange little town, something’s going down
But I’m not going back there anymore

Well I’m a fool and I’m a clown
I’m sick of standing around
When angry dogs are howling at my door
Pretty people, so many pretty people

Strange little town, so cool and so profound
But I’m not going back there anymore

I’m a fool and I’m a clown
I’m sick of standing around
Don’t you know I’ve heard it all before?

In that strange little town
To that strange little town

Hoooo
