Did you ever see a man turned inside out?
He can come and go without a sound
They say okay when they turn you down
'Cause someone's always smiling when they really frown

You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town
Don't put me down

And I only want a place to rest my head
But if looks could kill I might as well be dead
Get me on my feet, take me to the door
I'll face the law, might even get a bed

You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town, yeah yeah
You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town

Don't need me
Won't feed me now
Just say the word
Just smile as I'm thrown out, ooh

You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town
Alright

And the city's new, so the faces change
I know they're different yet they act the same
I've read the script and I know the score
I know it's only time before I'm shown the door

You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town, yeah yeah
You turf me out, can't keep me down
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town

I've got some money
So do you love me now?
Now, will you run me out
And they wonder why I shout

Even in a crowd when you're all alone
It's so far from home, there's faces all around
They stare mean and proud, you've gotta get away
You gotta get away

So I'm a stranger
And though you put me down
You know I, ain't no clown

And you're a stranger
'Cause I'll see you around
When the chips are down
I'm a stranger on the town

Ooh, the city's new, the faces change
I know they're different yet they act the same
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town

And I only want a place to rest my head
If looks could kill I might as well be dead
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town
Yes, I am

And everyone tries to put you down
Nobody wants to have you around
'Cause I'm a stranger on the town
Yes, I am

Stranger on the town
Stranger
