NORMAL CITY

I've got fourteen little weenies cooking on the grill
Fourteen little birthday girls sliding down the hill
All their moms in gossip mode who need to take a pill
And I just don't belong here, no, this is how I feel

I've got the Normal City blues, the Normal City blues
I'm walkin' 'round in normal clothes and normal looking shoes
A normal town where no one takes a risk or any chance
A town where you're thought foolish if you cast aside their plan
I want to break the Jello mold, my head out of the sand
I've got the Normal City blues, it's time my life began

I want to live in Vegas, take a slot machine in hand
I want to live in Boston where the music's from a band
I want to live in Frisco where the artists take a stand
I want to live where people sing and visit Disneyland

I've got the Normal City blues, the Normal City blues
I'm walkin' 'round in normal clothes and normal looking shoes
I'm living for a mortgage and Friday night TV
Married to a dentist with our money in CD
It might upset the apple cart when I decide to leave
But life in Normal City will be the end of me

I've got the Normal City blues, the Normal City blues
I'm walkin' 'round in normal clothes and normal looking shoes
A normal town where no one takes a risk or any chance
A town where you're thought foolish if you cast aside their plan
It's time to spill the dominoes, my life's become too bland
I've got the Normal City blues, it's time my life began

In Normal City barking dogs can make the headline news
Any offer to get out of here is one I can't refuse
Living for the moment, let's break some old taboos
Throw away these normal shoes and head for Santa Cruz

I've got the Normal City blues, the Normal City blues
I'm walkin' 'round in normal clothes and normal looking shoes
A normal town where no one takes a risk or any chance
A town where you're thought foolish if you cast aside their plan
I'm putting platform sneakers on and kicking up the sand
I've got the Normal City blues, it's time my life began
