Hell Town Story
Album: Retroglide - Artist: Level 42



 
(R. Gould/M. King)

Daddyís little manikin likes a good time
Stretched out in the limousine head all gone
Hair is pretty astrokhan for the boyfriend
He is a zoot suited zoon politikon

Mamaís mini Babylon hits the kitchen
(Canít) find the pills that she lives on,
itís a plot
See her world come crashing down,
sheís looking older
The Prom Queen ainít so pretty now,
like it or not

Itís just another little hell town story
Another blaze of hopeless glory
You donít have to end it for me
Itís gonna end all by itself

Daddyís busy taking it,
donít need the money
Embezzles for the sake of it,
it's his job
Tonight heís out and on the make,
got a yearning
Cruising for some cabaret Billy Bob

Freddyís on the run again,
tearing his way
Thru the streets for fun again,
cross that line
Borrowed Daddyís gun again,
no consequences
Money buys you everything,
even crime

Itís just another little hell town story
Another case of rich man poor me
You donít have to end it for me
Itís gonna end all by itself

Can you feel the heat tonight,
its aggressive
Hot enough to start a fight,
and it does
Mamaís shooting Daddy now,
bang and itís all over
Turns the gun upon herself,
and itís done

(The) kids find out thereís nothing left,
all alone now Freddy jumps a freight train west,
to Hollywood
Daddyís little manikin still craves the good times
Sheís so scared itís frightening,
it ainít no good

Chorus
