We don't live on easy street
But it's home
Looking out on the open road
Where you'll go it alone

To the last of our simple days
We'll wave goodbye
And down this road we've grown
And it's our very own

This is not a one-horse town
And we're not alone
It's somewhere off the beaten path
And we're loyal to the bone

Everybody's got their place
And got their role to play
We should never change our rules
'Cause it's our very own

Youth is but a breath in time
It's a cruise around the square
You swore you'd never be your folks
And suddenly you're there

You think you'll choose a different road
Than the one that you've been shown
But in the end we're in that square
And it's our very own

We don't live on easy street
But it's home
Looking out on that open road
Where you'll go it alone

To the last of our simple days
We'll wave goodbye
Down this road we've grown
And it's our very own

Down this road we've grown
And it's our very own

Come December, come what may
We'll recall our simple days
And we'll always know
They were our very own
