I still remember what I saw last night 
Three small kids stealing money from a poor man 
Now that ain`t right no that ain`t right 
I`m still thinking `bout the things I heard 
Poor old man - he was frightened and afraid of every word 
And it`s all so absurd 

But times are changing now an d I still care 
There must be something we can do out there 
I`m like a stranger in my own town baby 
I`m like a stranger in my own town baby 

I keep on walkin` through these run down streets 
Graffiti walls this ain`t nothing like it used to be 
Not for you or for me 
This town`s never been so down before 
Looks like a photograph - someone mighta taken in 
the second world war 
Oh but what was that for 

So many people gave their lives for this 
There`s nothing left for us to reminisce 
I`m like a stranger in my own town baby 
I`m like a stranger in my own town baby 

When those sad days were over 
I`m sure they all thought that weld won 
But now as I look around 
We`re still invaded by everyone 

Things won`t ever be the same again 
I`ve not lost a town I`ve lost my only friend 
Oh but where does it end 
We`ll never change these times with good intent 
But right now I know I don`t feel content 

I`m like a stranger in my own town baby 
I`m like a stranger in my own town baby
