lyrics

The stars at night were always bright deep in the heart of Pennsylvania Soon they’ll be gone and replaced by electric light Nobody read the disclaimer Go out tonight and it will end in a fist fight defending a lady’s honor It’s either get in line, or get left behind I can’t say that I’d blame you All of this and so much more can be yours They’ll make a big time city out of this small town Heed these words, what goes up must come back down They’ve seen it all before Skyscrapers and casinos by the grocery store There’s plenty more where that came from You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone Eviction notice and the rent goes up You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone Where did we go wrong?
I should be thanking you for favors?
Do me a favor and just get gone
Hey, we’ll put your heart back where it belongs Hey, we’ll put you right back where you belong I’ve seen these faces and heard of places that I probably shouldn’t go And they assure me my home is boring but it’s all I’ll ever know Fuck what you know and your advice I’m taking lessons from a man who hasn’t slept in seven nights I don’t know real food? Don’t know a good time?
Bar fights and whorehouses; sounds about right It takes one to know ten If you’ve seen one then you’ve seen all of your men It would be my privilege to pass the message If you don’t like it, then go the fuck home
