Lyrics

Think twice about big tall cities
That's right
Think twice about big tall cities
Think twice, right

He closes his eyes to the world
When he wakes up at night
And she, she reaches tenderly
Kisses him and holds him tight
He, he lies awake by her side
And waits for the cold sweat to dry
She, she comforts he
Tells him "scary things in your sleep can't bite"

Tomorrow they'll pack up their buckeye ties
Head for the big city
Past the driving rains
And desert plains touching Mexico

They'll see sidewalk stars
Luxury cars and even Disneyland
And reach the land of plenty
With the hopes that maybe
They can make a new start on the world

But my advice
You're gonna think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right
Think twice about big tall cities, right

Think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right
You're gonna think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right

I'm sorry old man
It's nothing personal, you understand
But I just gotta run
This lead pipe on someone

For tomorrow they ride upon a sour wind
That's gonna push them west
With Mojave dust, papercups
And Greyhound immigrants

They'll see sidewalk saviors
And drunken sailors
And she-men in leather like cops
You got the calling, stop stalling
The big city's waiting for you

But my advice
You're gonna think twice about big cities
Think twice about big cities, right
Think twice about big tall cities
Think twice, that's right

You're gonna think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right
Think twice about big cities, right
Think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right

You're gonna think twice about big cities
Think twice, right
Think twice about big tall cities, right
Think twice about big cities
Think twice, that's right

Think twice
Think twice
Think twice, right
Think twice
Think twice
