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

There’s something special about Sparks. Something that can’t be explained properly. They and their music are so weird but in such brilliant way that drives you completely crazy. Love this band. Hugely underrated.

I would like to say I agree with you, but don't know why. Was Ron hypnotizing us? They had several huge hits in UK

Yvonne Jarvis

"Underrated" for good reason. The music makes people want to stab their eardrums!

It's Like an opera

@Dumpy Goodness
I dont't think Mc Cartney mocks Ron Mael, it's rather a kind of tribute, there's so many references in this video. He surely laughs at himself as a young Beatle's bass player, and did i see Buddy Holly or Elvis Costello in this "coming up" video? Costello notably worked with Mc Cartney on "My Brave Face", I like to think that Paul is referring to Costello rather than Buddy Holly.
My uncle made me discover "This Town ain't big..." in 1974, I was 9 years old. Thanks to him I enjoyed Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Sweet, Gino Vannelli, Sparks.. so nice Uncle !
