I discovered a big town
On the crest of a wave
 Throwing money at strangers  Taking candy from babes  Shaking hands with the big top (?)
As the rain came down
I thought it would not stop
 Sending letters to Paris

 Taking pictures from the top.
There's a lot of things 
For you to do...
There's a lot of dreams 
That won't come true.
I grew up in a big town
The lessons were not hard to learn.
If you want them to love you,
Then you must not love them, in return.
 Spent the night at a party  Where I drank so much
I fell under your spell...
 Eight o'clock in the morning 
And the daylight makes me
Look and feel like hell.

When you live in a big town
 There are sights and sounds 
That make you
Want to cry...
