There's one thousand seven hundred and forty-two 

People in this little town 

And that one proverbial horse 

And everybody here'd be more than happy 

To spread a little gossip 'round

The Higgins boy's done got on dope 

And ol' man Dodd's been peeping through windows with a telescope 

How can there be 


So many ripples in this tiny puddle 

So many hearts tossed on this little storm 

In a town this shallow 

When you stur it you'll find trouble like 

So many ripples in a tiny puddle 

Last year the local mayor got caught 

Doin' the breast stroke in the typin' pool 

Now that's hands-on politics 

And Bubba's land, the banker bought it cause he knew 

That's where they're building the county school 

He's gonna get rich again 

And two seniors are havin' babies 

Ain't no ifs, ands or maybes, cause 

When you hear it from the Avon lady, its the gospel truth 

How can there be 



It's a tempest in a teapot 

It's a roaring little mouse 

We call it the Days of Our Lives on the rural route
