The Lyrics

Remember when John Mellencamp wrote Small Town? S.S. LeapSter thought of the opposite of small. He changed it to big just so it would be legal. Not very legal for a parody like this, but fine by me. Enj-WAH it Leap!
Well, I was born in the big town,
And I live here in this big town,
What you see is just a big town,
You may call it The Wild West.

All my rowdy friends in the big town,
My ladies live in the same big town.
My country is a big town,
It gives me a little time to rest.

There's a bar in this big town,
Where you drink beer in this old big town.
Used to get away from this big town,
The sheriff would totally shoot me.

But I've seen wild cowboys in this big town,
They all came and they shot me down,
I had me a lovely lady come to this big town,
This big town loves me.

No, I always forgot why I live in this old barn,
But I didn't forget my Bullseye horsey.
I love riding my horse into this big town,
This old town road gives me big money.

I hate living in a small town,
They don't even care why the city's a small town.
Rock 'n' rollin' in a small town,
That ain't good enough for me.

I just live in this big town,
And I shoot people in this big town.
The police into the big town,
They would definitely be arresting me.
Oh boy, Leap. I'm gonna get prosecuted in a big town and face the legal punishment now. Hope you enj-WAH-ed it or didn't and I'll see you when I'm able to make another song parody after I get out of prison.
