[Chorus]
Goin' back home 
To the Village of the Sun 
Out in back of Palmdale 
Where the turkey farmers run, I done 
Made up my mind 
And I know I'm gonna go to Sun 
Village, good God I hope the 
Wind don't blow 

It take the paint off your car 
And wreck your windshield too, 
I don't know how the people stand it, 
But I guess they do 
Cause they're all still there, 
Even Johnny Franklin too 
In the Village of the Sun 
Village of the Sun 
Village of the Sun, son 
(Sun Village to you) 

Little Mary, and Teddy, and Thelma too 
Where Palmdale Bouldevard 
Cuts on through 
Past the Village Inn and Barbecue 
(I heard it ain't there,
Well I hope it ain't true) 
Where the stumblers gonna go 
To watch the lights turn blue 
Where the stumblers gonna go 
To watch the lights turn 
Blue

[Chorus]

It take the paint off your car 
And wreck your windshield too, 
I don't know how the people stand it, 
But I guess they do 
Cause they're all still there, 
Even Johnny Franklin too 
In the Village of the Sun 
Village of the Sun 
Village of the Sun, son 
(Sun Village to you)
