Lyrics Allentown

Well we're living here in Allentown
And they're closing all the factories down
Out in Bethlehem they're killing time
Filling out forms standing in line
Well our fathers fought the second World War
Spent their weekends on the Jersey shore
Met our mothers in the USO asked them to dance danced with them slow
And we're living here in Allentown
But the restlessness was handed down
And it's getting very hard to stay
Hey hey hey oh oh oh
Well we're waiting here in Allentown
For the Pennsylvania we never found
For the promises our teachers gave if we worked hard if we behaved
So the graduations hang on the wall
But they never really helped us at all
No they never taught us what was real
Iron and coke chromium steel
And we're waiting here in Allentown
But they've taken all the coal from the ground
And the union people crawled away hey hey hey
Every child had a pretty good shot to get at least as far as their old man got
But something happened on the way to that place
They threw an American flag in our face
Oh oh oh
Well I'm living here in Allentown
And it's hard to keep a good man down
But I won't be getting up today hey hey hey
Hey hey hey oh oh oh
And it's getting very hard to stay
And we're living here in Allentown
