Boomtown

This song is by D.O.A. and appears on the album Murder (1990).

Boomtown, boomtown boomtown, boomtown
It's hard to say, how it got this way.
What I wanna know when does it end
Well they squeeze you dry, then they let you die
And then just throw ya away
Well the jobs were there, but they ain't no more
Now your starin' at a closed factory door
And the banker, he don't give a damn
He'd walk right over a dyin' man
Boomtown: well they set you up just to knock ya down
Boomtown: well your gonna get turned upside down
It comes an' goes, ya never know
When it's your turn for desolation row
Got no time to think, when your feelin' sore
An' the grass ain't green anymore
A revolving door, that your bound to meet
Shovin' people right out in the street
To a nightmare that keeps comin' round
Just hold on an' try not to drown
Boomtown: well they set you up just to smash you down
Boomtown: well your gonna get you'll get mowed down
Boomtown: well ya gotta smile, gotta smile - yeah better not frown
Boomtown - keep it to yourself
Shut yer mouth - yeah shut up an' sit down
Even if you try, your gonna cry cause yo won't make ends meet
Cause the boomtown will let you down it never comes through with the goods
It's a boomtown: well they set you up just to cut ya down
Boomtown: well your gonna get gonna get turned upside down
Boomtown: ya gotta smile gotta smile - better not frown
Boomtown: keep it to yourself shut your mouth - shut up and sit down
