  • Well we're living here in Allentown

  • And they're closing all the factories down

  • Out in Bethlehem they're killing time

  • Filling out forms standing in line

  • Well our fathers fought the Second World War

  • Spent their weekends on the Jersey Shore

  • Met our mothers in the U.S.O.

  • Asked them to dance

  • Danced with them slow

  • And we're living here in Allentown

  • But the restlessness was handed down

  • And it's getting very hard to stay

  • Well we're waiting here in Allentown

  • For the Pennsylvania we never found

  • For the promises our teachers gave

  • If we worked hard

  • If we behaved

  • So the graduations hang on the wall

  • But they never really helped us at all

  • No they never taught us what was real

  • Iron and coal chromium steel

  • And we're waiting here in Allentown

  • But they've taken all the coal from the ground

  • And the union people crawled away

  • Every child had a pretty good shot

  • To get at least as far as their old man got

  • If something happened on the way to that place

  • They threw an American flag in our face

  • Well I'm living here in Allentown

  • And it's hard to keep a good man down

  • But I won't be getting up today

  • And it's getting very hard to stay

  • And we're living here in Allentown

Well we're living here in Allentown
