"Barry Town" by Walter Becker & Donald Fagen (Steely Dan)
1. I'm not one to look behind, I know that times, must change,
But over there in Barry Town they do things very strange.
And though you're not my enemy, I like things like they used to be;
And though you'd like some company, I'm standing by myself,
Go and play with someone else.
I can see by what you carry that you came from Barry Town.
2. Don't believe I'm taken in by stories I have heard;
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word.
And don't think that I'm out of line for speaking for what is mine;
I like to see you just fine, but looking at what you wear
And the way you cut you hair.
In the beginning we recall the word was hurled; Barry Town people got to be from
3. Leave me or I'll be just like the others that you meet;
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street.
And don't you scream or make a shout; it's nothing you can do about;
It was there where you came out, it's a special lack of grace,
I can see it on your face. Chorus & repeat 3 x
