Bummer Town

Life's a bummer,all year 'round,here in Bummer Town
Happiness can't be found,in Bummer Town
If you're lucky,love can be found,here in Bummer Town
If you like 'em short and round,in Bummer Town
But pretty soon,you'll hear that awful sound,here in Bummer Town
Of breakin' hearts,and tears rainin' down,in Bummer Town

To find a job,ya gotta have a nose like a hound,here in Bummer Town
Ya gotta keep it close to the ground,in Bummer Town
And soon enough,you're workin' on the merry-go-round,here in Bummer Town
You can't get off,you're nowhere bound,in Bummer Town
Nobody smiles,they all wear frowns,here in Bummer Town
Even the birthday clowns,in Bummer Town

Bummer Town Bummer Town,you keep me down,it aint no place to bum around
Bummer Town Bummer Town,one day i'll be bound,to some happy town

I'd leave so fast,your head would spin around,here in Bummer Town
If my car wasn't broken down,in Bummer Town
For all the foolish souls,it's a breeding ground,here in Bummer Town
And for all their hopes and dreams,it's a dumping ground,in Bummer Town
If dying didn't cost so much,i'd be ready for the burial mound,here in Bummer Town
Guess i'll spend another day just bummin' 'round,in Bummer Town

Bummer Town Bummer Town,you keep me down,it aint no place to bum around
Bummer Town Bummer Town,one day i'll be bound,to some happy town
Where the radio plays,just happy sounds

I've lived in some [naughty word removed] towns and known folks thinking if they step outside of the town they could drop off the planet. Inbred knuckle draggers who smell your ass when you walk in the bar to see if you are part of their clan lol
Sounds like you have them in the states too Mike
Not sure how it would work songwise. Could go down well in a bar with the crowd shouting out the tag

Mike, I like this one, particularly as the lyrics stand on their own absent the "Here in" In Bummer Town" refrain at the end of each line. Might give you some flexibility translating to song, where that refrain could be a secondary vocal (if that make sense). This one has a ton of potential (and for some reason reminds me of Live's tune "Sh*t Town"--though I'm guessing many on this board never heard that one).

All the best,

Deej

Good one with a great hook, Mike.

Vic


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Just Plain Quotes
"Parents are notorious for telling you not to do something, but not telling you WHAT to do instead. So here are my thoughts. Don't bite the hand that feeds you, give it a manicure. Don't burn your bridges, go out and build more! And of course, Don't run with Scissors, use them to cut out your press clippings!" -Brian Austin Whitney
