This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Face the Music (1975).

Original video
Reversed:
Face the mighty waterfall
Face the mighty waterfall

The world outside don't like us much
'Cause they ain't got our classy touch
But they ain't good enough to breathe
This town's good air, we make 'em leave

But it's no, no, no
Really can't do that
No, no, no
Down home town

No monkey business in this town
Who do you think you're pushing 'round?
This town's respectable and clean
Just look around, you'll see what I mean

But it's no, no, no
Really can't do that
No, no, no
Down home town

Down home town
Down home town
Down home town
Down home town
Down home town
Down home town

But it's no, no, no
Really can't do that
No, no, no
Down home town

We got the best town band around
Just listen to their crazy sound
When they get hot, they gonna blow
You see them winnin' every show

Wish I was in the land of Dixie
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Look away!

Down home town (Gotta get down, gotta get down)
Down home town (Gotta get down, gotta get down)
Down home town
Down home town (Ooh, I think they're coming down now)
Down home town

But it's no, no, no (No)
Really can't do that (She loves you)
No, no, no (I can't do that)
Down home town

Wish I was in the land of Dixie
Look away! Look away!
