Town Without Pity
Gene Pitney Lyrics


When you're young and so in love as we
And bewildered by the world we see
Why do people hurt us so?
Only those in love would know
What a town without pity can do

If we stop to gaze upon a star
People talk about how bad we are
Ours is not an easy age
We're like tigers in a cage
What a town without pity can do

The young have problems, many problems
We need an understanding heart
Why don't they help us, try to help us
Before this clay and granite planet falls apart

Take these eager lips and hold me fast
I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last
How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two?
What a town without pity can do

How can we keep love alive
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two?
What a town without pity can do

No, it isn't very pretty what a town without pity can do

Once in a while, a singer comes along with a totally unique voice. No-one else sounds like Orbison, or Bassey, or Jones, or Pitney, or Presley. Gene Pitney was, is and will always be a superstar

Awsome

Basil Marasco

Yes, Gene had a certain, very appealing "edge" to his voice that set him apart.

Basil Marasco

@flashtheoriginal Yes, I remember Matt Monro. He sounded just a little bit like Frank Sinatra.

Gary Francis

Alex Jones

Martin Carman

...and Jon Anderson.

I was nine when this song came out in 1961. It twisted my heart all up then and it still does fifty-nine years later. A truly unforgettable song for me.

I was 10 and have always been a fan of his.
