Lyrics

Well, you know I was a farmer when I was a younger man
Until the fields got paved with asphalt and they took away my land
And now the monument before us, it stands so tall and proud
A glorious new minimall upon the earth that I once plowed

I sold my house out in the country to rent a trailor by the mall
It's not so bad except the kitchen's just a little small
I got a job at the local hardware store, where I work till five o'clock
But now they built another home improvement palace down the block

What's the sense of all this home improvement I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand for I don't think we need improvement anymore
I lost my job at the hardware store when the owner closed it down He said the rent was just too high to keep his family in this town He sold his house to an executive, who tore it down to build anew A million dollar mansion with a $20 view
What's the sense of all this home improvement I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand for I don't think we need improvement anymore
Someday this town will reach its goal and everyone will have A Mercedes in the driveway of their subdivision land Clear the way for progress by demolishing the past 100 miles an hour and we're going nowhere fast
What's the sense of all this home improvement I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand for I don't think we need improvement anymore
