Anthony Smith – Metropolis lyrics
Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town
Took the stop sign down
It was shot up anyhow
One night I ran right through it in my Chevrolet
Both police cars came
But I got away

It was a boom town back in '62
Til the coal ran out and a dry came through
When they damned the river where we all used to fish
Population 405 and I'm 840409
And there's a city limit sign layin in the ditch
Run blown over it
Deep in metropolis

Well I found myself in a big high rise with a concrete yard
It ain't safe after dark
Guess this ol' boy drove too far
Met a girl, fell in love, got married
And she's doin may
Say's we're gonna need more space
I say I know just the place
Where we can walk down to the country store
And we won't even have to lock our doors
And you can still get air and water there for free
She says that sounds good to me

It was a boom town back in '62
Til the coal ran out and a dry came through
When they damned the river where we all used to fish
Population 404 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more
And there's a city limit sign layin in the ditch
That I need to fix
Back in metropolis
Almost in metropolis
Comin up on metropolis
I'm back in metroposis
