It's dark, dark in the daytime The people sleep, sleep in the daytime If they want to, if they want to
[Chorus:] I'm checking them out I'm checking them out I got it figured out I got it figured out There's good points and bad points 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!...A dry ice factory A good place to get some thinking done
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. Did I forget to mention, to 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.
