lyrics

Mom
Dad
Livin in new downtown is so damn rad
hanging out
so much to see

there's no shopping malls
unlike your suburbia that sprawls
we've found a new home


new downtown
is where I wanna be
new downtown
is just the place for me

They've done some rearranging to make sure those streets are clean
new downtown
is where I wanna be

Mom
Dad
You said left the city to get away
too much crime and
urban decay

well we took it - back
locked up all those people hooked on crack
cause this town belongs to us

we evicted all the welfare moms
got rid of all the bums
gutted all buildings
to make room for

new downtown
is where I wanna be
new downtown
is just the place for me
They've done some rearranging to make sure those streets are clean
new downtown
is where I wanna be

mom dad
you gave us everything but we still want some more

mom dad
thanks for all love but we still want some more
more more more
new downtown
