Uh huh

I was walking down the street the other day
And a woman stopped me
She said, 'why is it you look so down in the mouth'?
And I told her:

This is a burnt-out town
It's full of dirty looks
There's ashes on main street
And the mayor is cookin' the books

Why, even my best friends are turnin' into crooks

Yeah this is a burnt-out town
New emperor, same clothes
They're dancing on glass ceilings
While the filthy money flows

Yes, and here I am, stealing gas with a garden hose
Oh look out now!

Take that!

Look here
This is a burnt-out town
The city fathers have come to blows
It's out of their realm of reality
The truth's indecent when exposed

Yeah it's a burnt-out town
It's goin' down but no one knows
Yeah it's a burnt-out town
Ain't dead, but gettin' close
