Metropolis (Smith Anthony)

Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town Took the stop sign down It was shot up anyhow One night I ran right through it in my Chevrolet Both police cars came But I got away It was a boom town back in '62 Til the coal ran out and a dry came through When they damned the river where we all used to fish Population 405 and i'm 840409 And there's a city limit sign layin in the ditch Run blown over it Deep in metropolis Well I found myself in a big high rise with a concrete yard It ain't safe after dark Guess this ol' boy drove too far Met a girl, fell in love, got married And she's doin may Say's we're gonna need more space I say I know just the place Where we can walk down to the country store And we won't even have to lock our doors And you can still get air and water there for free She says that sounds good to me It was a boom town back in '62 Til the coal ran out and a dry came through When they damned the river where we all used to fish Population 404 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more And there's a city limit sign layin in the ditch That I need to fix Back in metropolis Almost in metropolis Comin up on metropolis I'm back in metroposis
