    The Great Suburban Showdown

    Flyin' east on a plane
    Drinkin' all that free champagne
    I guess I saw this comin' down the line
    And I know it should be fun
    But I think I should've packed my gun
    Got that old suburban showdown in my mind

    Sit around with the folks
    Tell the same old tired jokes
    Bored to death on Sunday afternoon
    Mom and Dad, me and you
    And the outdoor barbecue
    Think I'm gonna hide out in my room

    I've been gone for a while
    Made some changes in my style
    And they say you can't go home anymore
    Well the streets all look the same
    And I'll have to play the game
    We'll all sit around in the kitchen chairs
    With the TV on and the neighbors there

    Out in the yard
    Where my Daddy worked so hard
    He never lets the crab grass grow too high
    Oh, the place hasn't changed
    And that's why I'm gonna feel so strange
    But I'll have to face the music bye and bye

    I've been gone for a while
    Made some changes in my style
    And they say you can't go home anymore
    Well the streets all look the same
    And I'll have to play the game
    We'll all sit around in the kitchen chairs
    With the TV on and the neighbors there

    Drive into town
    When this big bird touches down
    I'm only comin' home to say goodbye
    Then I'm gone with the wind
    And I won't be seen again
    Till that great suburban showdown in the sky
    Till that great suburban showdown in the sky
