lyrics

Funtown

heard my father falling
falling off the mountain
he couldn’t see the moon
floating on the river
above, a flock of birds
was passing through the night sky
i counted every feather
and then set off a-walking

so hear me now
so hear me now
so hear me now
i‘m on my way
to Funtown

heard a baby crying
crying like a bonfire
the wind was blowin’ the sound
out across the graveyard
a train was passing by
it turned into a june bug
it came a sudden rainfall
some lightning struck a gravestone

so hear me now
so hear me now
so hear me now
i‘m on my way
to Funtown
to Funtown

i dropped a dollar bill
the ground began to tremble
i saw a woman crawling
crawling toward a smokestack
and now a snake is hissing
coiled around a moonbeam
a hurricane is brewing
on some distant planet’s ocean

so hear me now
so hear me now
so hear me now
i‘m on my way
to Funtown
to Funtown
to Funtown
to Funtown
