Well they finally put that red light up in the heart of town Took the stop sign down, it was shot up anyhow One night I ran right through it in my Chevrolet Both police cars came, but I got away It was a boom town back in'62, 'til the coal ran out And a drought came through, and they dammed the river That we all used to fish Population 405 and I made it 404 one night And left the city limit sign layin' in the ditch Run plumb over it, leavin' Metropolis Well, I found myself in a big high-rise with a concrete yard It ain't safe after dark, guess this ol' boy drove too far Met a girl, fell in love, got married and she's due in May Says we're gonna need more space, I said I know just the place Where we can walk down to the country store And we won't even have to lock our door We can still get air and water there for free She said that sounds good to me It was a boom town back in '62, 'til the coal ran out And a drought came through, and they dammed the river That we all used to fish Population 404 and when we pull in it'll be 3 more And there's a city limit sign layin' in the ditch That I need to fix, back in Metropolis I'm almost in Metropolis And I'm back in Metropolis
