Sewer Town

music by Becker & Fagen

lyrics by Becker, Fagen & Scott

sung by Russell Scott @ 25-yr reunion

I'm not one to look behind, I know that times must change,
But over there in Sewer Town they do things very strange.
Although you're not my enemy,
I like things like they used to be.
And though you'd like some company,
I'm standing by myself.
Go play with someone else.
I can can see by what you're doing that you come from Sewer Town.

Don't believe I'm taken in by stories that I've heard.
I just read the Daily News and swear by every word.
And don't think that I'm out of line
For speaking out for what is mine.
I'd like to see you do just fine,
But look at what you wear
And the way you cut your hair!
I can can see by what you're doing that you come from Sewer Town.

In the beginning we recall that the word was hurled:
Sewer Town people got to be in a different world!

Leave me or I'll be just like the others you will meet.
They won't act as kindly if they see you on the street.
Now don't you scream and don't you shout,
It's nothing you can do about.
It was there where you came out.
You don't know where it's at,
'Cause you're a River Rat!
I can can see by what you're doing that you come from Sewer Town.
