dizzy town, you’re all wrapped up in your sports teams,
and what went down last night on the TV,
you wax profound over every little detail,
I love you, but you’re such a dizzy town..

all your hills and bridges used to twist me,
they took me places where I didn’t plan to go,
I’d get turned around, end up somewhere on your back streets,
I love you, but you’re such a tricky town..
+++ now I’m too broke to move away,
+++ just one of your adopted sons
+++ who came and decided to stay,
+++ I know I’m not the only one
+++ who’s too broke to move away..

the radio plays classic rock and oldies,
and it’s hardly changed in 20 years or more,
to compliment your cheap beer and pierogies,
I love you, but you’re such a time-warp,
+++ too broke to move away,
+++ just one of your adopted sons
+++ who came and decided to stay,
+++ I know I’m not the only one
+++ who’s too broke to move away..

a wrinkled face is softened in the half-light,
when all her ghosts come out to mill around,
dirty town, I love you best at twilight,
most beautiful right after sundown,
+++ too broke to move away,
+++ just one of your adopted sons
+++ who came and decided to stay,
+++ I know I’m not the only one
+++ who’s too broke to move away from this dizzy town…
