There Goes The Neighborhood Lyrics

by 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 the freaks are all out on the town

And cowboy Jane's in bed
Nursin' 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

Photo chick made to look sickly
Is standin' in her panties in the shower
She plays the guitar in the bathroom
While the police dust her mother's plastic flowers

And schoolboy John's in jail
Makin' a killin' 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
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 carryin' the message to a flunkies
We can't be certain who the villains are
'Cuz everyone's so pretty
But the after party's sure to be
A wing ding as it moves into your city

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
Now there goes the neighborhood
An' there goes the neighborhood
