lyrics

Lyrics:

My tears run down the streets
Of Vogue Town
My tears run down the streets
Of Vogue Town

Are they tears of laughter?
Or tears of joy?
Are they tears of relief?
Listen girls and boys,
We’re all in this together
Some of us more than others
So run out in the streets
Or hide out under the covers
Cause nothing is what it seems…
In Vogue Town

No nothing’s as it seems…
In Vogue Town

My home town, my home town, my home town, my home town

Come back home, to where you’ve always been
Now throw off your frown, and give us a grin
There’s nothing lose when no one can win
And every little girl gives it her own spin
Paper play money lines the streets
Of Vogue Town

Put your money down (put your money down)
Let your honey down (let it all run down)
Throw some poetry down (throw it down, down, down)

Show your happy face (put on your prettiest dress)
Leave without a trace (leave no forwarding address)
Ain’t no federal case (just get it off of your chest)

My hometown — All torn down
My hometown — all burned — down

There’s no turning back
From Vogue Town

All fall through the cracks
In Vogue Town

Tears run down the streets
In Vogue Town

On infinite repeat
In Vogue Town, In Vogue Town, In Vogue Town
