Can’t Take This Town

( Colin Hay )

There’s a woman in the mirror fixing her lips
There’s a man in the bathroom looking for tips
I park the car and no-one to pay
And one pizza later it’s towed away

I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it
I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it

Sitting eating dinner just the other day
Not my friends I didn’t know what to say
A woman leaned over said you gotta have hits
And all I could do was stare at her

I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it
I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it

Caught in a crossfire a child goes down
No-one saw a thing or heard a sound
Life is cheap or so it would appear
Try telling his mama she can’t stop the tears

I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it
I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it

I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it
I can’t take this town
I just don’t believe it
I can’t take this town
I better love it or leave it
