Smalltown

This song is by Andy Partridge and appears on the compilation album Fuzzy Warbles Volume 5 (2004).

Smalltown snoring under blankets
Woken by the clank
It's just a milkman's dream round

Smalltown hiding undercovers
The lodgers and the lovers
Are asleep 'round Smalltown

Shiny black snake of bikes
He slithers
Bearing up the men and boys
To work

We're standing in popular times
Making alarm clocks
That'll wake our wives up

Don't ask us we haven't the time
We're racing the hooter
That'll signal life's up

Smalltown crouching in the valley
Woken by the sally army
Sunday march 'round

Smalltown coughing in the toilet
Who on earth would spoil it
Would they pull down the Smalltown

If it's all the same to you Mrs Progress
Think I'll drink my Oxo up and get away
It's not that you're replusive to see
In your brand new catalogue rayon nightie
You're too fast for little old me
Next you'll be telling me it's 1990

I have lived here for a thousand years
Or maybe more
And I've sheltered all the children
Who have fought the wars

And as payment they make love in me
In squeaky old beds
In bicycle sheds
Inside their heads
As Tories and Reds
As singles and weds
And that's how I'm fed
And that's how I'm fed
And that's how I'm fed

Smalltown snoring under blankets
Woken by the clank
It's just a milkman's dawn round

Smalltown hiding undercovers
The lodgers and the lovers
Are asleep 'round Smalltown

Smalltown crouching in the valley
Woken by the sally army
Sunday march 'round

Smalltown coughing in the toilet
Who on earth would spoil it
Would they pull down Smalltown

Smalltown
Smalltown
Smalltown
Smalltown
Smalltown
Smalltown
Smalltown...
