There Goes The Neighborhood (Album Version)

There Goes The Neighborhood (Album Version)

Sheryl Crow

Hey let's party, let's get down, let's turn the radio on
This is the meltdown
Get out the camera, take a picture
The drag queens and freaks are all out on the town

And Cowboy Jane's in bed
Nursing a swollen head
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow

I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about
Now there goes the neighborhood
The photo chick made to look sickly is standing in her panties, in the shower
She plays guitar in the bathroom while the police dust her mother's plastic flowers

And Schoolboy John's in jail
Making a killing through the U.S. Mail
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow

I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about
Now there goes the neighborhood
Neighborhood
Now there goes the neighborhood

This is the movie of the screenplay of the book about a girl who meets a junkie
The messenger gets shot down just for carrying the messages to a flunky
We can't be certain who the villains are 'cause everyone's so pretty
But the after party's sure to be a wing-ding as it moves into your city, oh

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the stink was about

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a Saturday night just to see what the fuss was about
There goes the neighborhood

Oh,
Now there goes the neighborhood
