This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us
Sparks Lyrics


Zoo time, is she and you time?
The mammals are your favourite type, and you want her tonight
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Flying, domestic flying
And when the stewardess is near do not show any fear
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
You are a khaki-coloured bombardier, it's Hiroshima that you're nearing
This town ain't big enough for both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Daily, except for Sunday
You dawdle in to the cafe where you meet her each day
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
As twenty cannibals have hold of you, they need their protein just like you do
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Shower, another shower
You've got to look your best for her and be clean everywhere
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
The rain is pouring on the foreign town, the bullets cannot cut you down
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave

Census, the latest census
There'll be more girls who live in town though not enough to go round
Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat
You know that this town isn't big enough, not big enough for both of us
This town isn't big enough, not big enough for both of us
I ain't gonna leave

Zoo time is she and you time
The mammals are your favourite type, and you want her tonight

Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat

You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

And it ain't me who's gonna leave



[Verse 2]

Flying, domestic flying

And when the stewardess is near do not show any fear

Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat

You are a khaki-coloured bombardier, it's Hiroshima that you're nearing

This town ain't big enough for both of us

And it ain't me who's gonna leave



[Verse 3]

Daily, except for Sunday

You dawdle in to the cafe where you meet her each day

Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat

As 20 cannibals have hold of you, they need their protein just like you do

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

And it ain't me who's gonna leave



[Verse 4]

Shower, another shower

You got to look your best for her and be clean everywhere

Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat

The rain is pouring on the foreign town, the bullets cannot cut you down

This town ain't big enough for the both of us

And it ain't me who's gonna leave





[Verse 5]

Census, the latest census

There'll be more girls who live in town though not enough to go round

Heartbeat, increasing heartbeat

You know that this town isn't big enough, not big enough for both of us

This town isn't big enough, not big enough for both of us

I ain't gonna leave

Looks like he's wasted lol

I clicked on this just as it linked up perfectly to the repeated riff later in the song, so it felt like a natural extension of the song. Crazy

@Kairo Emmitt I am trying it out right now. Looks to be working.

One of the greatest songs in pop history totally wasted on that crowd...

We all should regard guitarist Ian Hampton a true hero of the people. The man called out Jimmy Savile's behaviour to floor management at the Top of the Pops studio after he witnessed the scumbag exiting the set quietly with a very young female audience member. Obviously Ian wasn't listened to, and for that the BBC should hang it's head in shame for eteternity and a day. Not a lot of people might not know about you and what you did Ian, but i do. And for what you did the country owes you a massive thank you.

Comment on the song, ffs

@Michael Stevenson Yes, that was the relationship that was well documented but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Page and Plant went through a phase of sleeping with the so-called 'child models' in America in the 70's. Sickening how who you are impacts on the way the mainstream media do or don't go after you for similar offences.
