Sure is a Small Town

Shirley tells Mabel, and Mabel tells Jean
You won’t believe what Shirley’s just seen
Jean tells Aunt Edna, Don’t breath a word
I’ve been talking to Mabel, n’guess what I just heard

Sure is a small town
and those rumors sure fly around
there ain’t nothin’ to do
just keep track of who’s who
sure is a small place
You’ll never see an unfamiliar face
and everyone knows,
what everyone does
sure is a small town

Bridge:
there ain’t no secrets,
in a town that’s so small
what else have they got to do

Wilmer’s got shingles, and Fred’s got the gout
And Doyle took up joggin’,
I don’t know what that’s about
Ruth got new dishes, and Bill and Nadine
Well they’re gettin’ married if you know what I mean

sure is a small town
and those rumors sure fly around
there ain’t nothin’ to do
just keep track of who’s who
sure is a small place
You’ll never see an unfamiliar face
and everyone knows, what everyone does
sure is a small town

Yeah everyone knows what everyone does
sure is a small town
