Think of London, a small city
Dark, dark in the daytime
People sleep, sleep in the daytime
If they want to, if they want to

I’m checking them out
I’m checking them out
I've got it figured out
I'm the one thats got it figured out
There’s good points
some bad points
It all works out
I'm just a little freaked out

I will find a city
find myself a city to live in
find a city
find myself a city to live in

Down El Paso way things get pretty spread out
people got no idea where in the world they are
they go up north and come back south
still got no idea where in the world they are

I’m checking them out
I’m checking them out
I've got it figured out
I'm the one thats got it figured out
there’s good points
some bad points
it all works out
I'm just a little freaked out

I will find a city
find myself a city to live in
find a city
find myself a city to live in

There are a lot of rich people in Birmingham
A lot of ghosts in a lot of houses
Look over there!
dry ice factory
a good place to get some thinking done

I’m checking them out
I’m checking them out
I've got it figured out
I'm the one thats got it figured out
There’s good points
some bad points
It all works out
I'm just a little freaked out

I will find a city
find myself a city to live in
find a city
find myself a city to live in

Did I forget to mention, to forget mention Memphis?
Home of Elvis and the ancient Greeks
Do I smell? I smell home cooking
It’s only the river, it’s only the river

I’m checking them out
I’m checking them out
I've got it figured out
I got it figured out
There’s good points
some bad points
It all works out
I'm just a little freaked out

I'll, find a city
find myself a city to live in
find a city
find myself a city to live in
