Replacements — Happytown lyrics

The plan was to sweep the world off it's feet
So you sweep the garage for the neighbours to see
The plan was to set the world on it's ear
And I bet you don't know why you're here

Who knew
That avenue was bound for happy town
Happy town
Happy now
Happy town

Actors, authors, artists and thieves
Have afternoon parties where nobody heaves
Former strippers and junkies and men of the cloth
And we all fell in line and got lost

Who knew
That avenue was bound for happy town
Happy town
Hey, happy now

Happy town
Happy town

Happy town
Happy town

The plan was to set the world on it's ear
And I'm willing to bet you don't last a year
The plan was to set the world on fire
But it rains every day on the liar

In happy town
Happy town
Happy town

Repeat
