The Little Wretches: Music

Largest of Small Towns

(The Little Wretches)
April 26, 2012
Robert A. Wagner
This is the largest of small towns
which means nothing ever happens
without the tacit approval
of the good old boys

the good old boys are neither good nor old
they never travel alone
they don't like what they don't know
and they don't know me...

This is the largest of small towns
the beggars won't chase after pennies
but toss a handful of nickels
and watch the good times roll

This the largest of small towns
first impressions last a lifetime
and a lifetime leaves no impression at all.
