Small Town Attitude (Randy Downey)

Small town attitude and big white lies,
Breaking people's hearts in two and tearing up their lives;
I've become a victim of this petty jealousy,
And I am not alone in this cause, so has she.

Listen, and you'll see just what I mean.

Hey, Mary's ten years older but to me that's no big deal,
Age is just a state of mind;
Depends on how you feel, and Mary feels all right to me,
And she gives me all I need.

It ain't nobody's business 'cept for her and me.

Why can't they let us be the way we are?
Oh, Mary gets embarrassed when she feels an awkward stare
From a casual acquaintance, and she finds it everywhere
I tell her not to be concerned, go on about her day.

She says, she just don't understand why people are this way.

And someone even told me I should play the hand I'm dealt,
Oh, there's a guy who's never loved and don't know how it felt,
So I'm sticking with the queen of hearts, I'm gonna call his bluff.
'Cause he's already tipped his hand and he hasn't got the stuff.

And I've had just about enough
Of this small town attitude and big white lies;
Breaking people's hearts in two and tearing up their lives,
I won't remain a victim to this petty jealousy.

'Cause I can rise above it and so can she.

Mary's got to see she has a choice.

Oh, Mary gets embarrassed when she feels an awkward stare
From a casual acquaintance, and she finds it everywhere;
I tell her not to be concerned, go on about her day,
She says, she just don't understand why people are this way.

With this small town attitude, small town attitude,
OH OH OH OH OH OH OH.

OH OH OH OH things are gonna change,
Yeah, they're gonna change.

We're gonna live our lives just the way we want,
OOHHHHHHHHHHH.
