lyrics

There's a diner down the road
They say it has a name
But everyone who goes there
They just call it the diner

There was a library here
But when it got old
We filled it up with dynamite
And watched it explode

At Christmas time you could see the little Santas
Wave their hands you could watch them for free
But now when you walk these cold cavernous halls
You'll shed a tear, now there's a fee

There's a bush in the corner of the front yard
With a hand that waves as the cars go by
And every few years when the rains come down
You could jump from your window splash all around

In Fairfield
You could get fries and gravy
HEY! There's my brother Davey
Playing softball early Sunday morning
Some say Calandras, others say Calandras
I don't give a damn just give me my bread
In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes

Some of these things
They come and go
But forever in my mind they'll stay

Who did you know
Stevenson or Churchill
They prepared you for your future life
So I threw all my change at the Space Invaders
And defended of town from the missiles in the sky

In Fairfield
You could get fries and gravy
HEY! There's my brother Davey
Playing softball early Sunday morning
Some say Calandras, others say Calandras
I don't give a damn just give me my cake
In Fairfield, there used to be Good Tymes
