LOU REED - Smalltown Lyrics

When you're growing up in a small townWhen you're growing up in a small townWhen you're growing up in a small townYou say, no one famous ever came from hereWhen you're growing up in a small townAnd you're having a nervous breakdownAnd you think that you'll never escape itYourself or the place that you liveWhere did picasso come fromThere's no michelangelo coming from pittsburghIf art is the tip of the icebergI'm the part sinking belowWhen you're growing up in a small townBad skin, bad eyes, gay and fattyPeople look at you funnyWhen you're in a small townMy father worked in constructionIt's not something for which I'm suitedOh, what is something for which you are suitedGetting out of hereI hate being odd in a small townIf they stare let them stare in new york cityAs this pink eyed painting albinoHow far can my fantasy goI'm no dali coming from pittsburghNo adorable lisping capoteMy hero, oh, do you think I could meet himI'd camp out at his front doorThere is only one good thing about small townThere is only one good use for a small townThere is only one good thing about small townYou know that you want to get outWhen you're growing up in a small townYou know you'll grow down in a small townThere is only one good use for a small townYou hate it and you'll know you have to leave
