Taxing Town

(M. Randall)

In this taxing town
How high are the rates now?
In this taxing town
How much do I need to pay?

Roar of the crowd, or is it just me dreaming?
Can’t sleep it off when you’re in the hall screaming


Can’t speak a word of the local idiom
Why don’t you take your tongue back where it came from?

I came to this town expecting action
But how could I’ve known the party never ends?
Bachelorettes from foreign nations
Gather in packs with their drunken friends
Feather boas in the wind
It’s too much, too much to pay


Everyone says there’s an entry fee
Didn’t know it was my sanity

Club connoisseurs congregate by my window
The weekend is here and it’s time to shout
Raising their lungs in a lusty bellow
They need to let everybody know they’re out
Out and about
It’s too much, too much to pay
