Lyrics TONIGHT MY HEART IS BEATING LOW
AND MY HEAD IS BOWED,
YOU'VE BEEN SEEN WITH MY BEST FRIEND
ON THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN.
I DON'T MIND THIS WAITING,
DON'T MIND THIS RUN AROUND,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOMETOWN.

HOW CAN I STAND UP TO MY FRIENDS
AND LOOK 'EM IN THE EYE?
ADMIT THE QUESTION THAT I KNOW
WOULD BE NOTHING BUT LIES.
YOU SPEND ALL YOUR PAST TIME
MAKING ME A CLOWN,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOME TOWN.

NOW THERE ARE NO SECRETS
IN THIS LITTLE COUNTRY TOWN,
EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE
FOR MILES AND MILES AROUND.
YOUR BRIGHT EYES AND YOUR SWEET SMILE
ARE DRIVING ME INSANE,
YOU THINK IT'S SMART
TO BREAK MY HEART
AND RUN DOWN MY NAME.

HOW CAN I STAND UP TO MY FRIENDS
AND LOOK 'EM IN THE EYE?
ADMIT THE QUESTION THAT I KNOW
WOULD BE NOTHING BUT LIES.
YOU SPEND ALL YOUR PAST TIME
MAKING ME A CLOWN,
BUT IF YOU'RE GONNA CHEAT ON ME,
DON'T CHEAT IN OUR HOME TOWN.
