History of a Boring Town
by Less Than Jake

Just talked to this girl, used to live, yeah on my street
After all these years you're here and you remember me
She said her old boyfriend
Packed up and headed back east
But she always knew someday he would go
She just got a new job and she doubts it will last
So let's take a drink and never think and here's to the past
She says it's so funny how life burns out so fast
It's just another wasted day

A boring life in a boring town
In the same old crowd
And I used to say that I'd never stay
But I'm rotting here today
With that same old crowd that's always been around
And I always thought I'd be the first to go

That same old crowd that drags me down
Another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
A boring life in a boring town

Just talked to this girl, used to live, yeah on my street
After all these years you're here
And it's still just you and me
Sometimes I can't believe after all these years
I just think that I'll never leave here
She said it's so funny how life burns out so fast
So let's take another drink and here's to the past

That same old crowd that drags me down
Another day in a boring town
That same old crowd that brings me down
A boring life in a boring town

And remember when they'd look through you
And they'd look past me
We were the ones they said would always leave
So when you go just think of me
Think of me

A boring life in a boring town
In the same old crowd
And I used to say that I'd never stay
But I'm rotting here today
With that same old crowd that's always been around
And I always thought that
Yeah and I always thought that
Yeah I'd always thought that I'd be
The first to go

A boring life
A boring town
A boring life
A boring town
A boring life
And a boring town

I was two votes shy of this being my high school class' official graduation song. Instead, we got some country bullshit.

Mortified Penguin.

Nearly 30 and these lyrics still ring true.

I swear my version of the cover didn't have the diving board. I always thought the man was flying away...

Love this song with a passion. I live in a Small Town in Michigan, boring life in a boring town and I can honestly say, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love it here. It's only boring if you let it be, but I've got friends and family here.

Ahhw E-Any

I grew up an HR away from Michigan. It's where I discovered ltj. On a college radio station, in the 90s. I grew up in northern Ohio. I'd listen to this when I knew we were moving. Prob even before we were moving. It kinda sucks to not have that same still structure. Even tho., I just moved to another small town... They're not really comparable. I'm just being honest. But sometimes I look at the small town mentalities, or take the rd less traveled types & I think to myself they're boring. Like how do they get so comfortable in sameness? Don't they need more spice? It could just be the city over, & they act like it's a big deal to not go there even. & It's just like 🤦🏻‍♀️, yeah no. I'm not vibing with you. I'm not implying that I'm the most interesting person ever. I'm js, I'd like to have a little more adventure than that. If I die tommorow, my entire life experience shouldn't have been narrowed down to one routine bubble. I don't mean to sound like I'm that unpredictable & sporadic either. I'm js. What's life w/ out experiences? I can't do it. I just can't. W/ The "busy bodies..."
