Cops showed up at a eleven o'six
With the FBI and their black crown vicks
Cuffed coach Martin with his face in the ground
Neighbors say he got off a couple a rounds
Hundred thousand dollars in an old suitcase
He had a green house in his crawl space

When the lights come on in a sleepy little town
There ain't no secrets when the truth comes out
And everybody knows cause the word gets around
When the lights come on in a sleepy little town

Stereotypical preachers wife
Everybody loved her she was so nice
Never told a soul about the things he did
Till she took a bottle to the back of his head
They say she simply told 911
"Now he deserved what I just done"

When the lights come on in a sleepy little town
There ain't no secrets when the truth comes out
And everybody knows cause the word gets around
When the lights come on in a sleepy little town
Woah ooh oh oh oh sleepy little town

Now everyones proud of Mary Lou
She had a full ride to a private school
Gonna be a doctor or a lawyer someday
She's 17 and three months late
We all thought that she'd never been kissed but
She doesn't know who the daddy is

When the lights come on in a sleepy little town
There ain't no secrets when the truth comes out
And everybody knows cause the word gets around
When the lights come on in a sleepy little town

Woah ooh oh oh oh, Woah ooh oh oh oh, Woah ooh oh oh oh sleepy little town
Woah ooh oh oh oh, Woah ooh oh oh oh, Woah ooh oh oh oh sleepy little town
Woah ooh oh oh oh, woah ooh oh ooh, sleepy little town
