They Might Be Giants Cabbagetown Lyrics

I was laying on the porch

As the bus drove by

Just talking to the dog

About thinking to myself

There are so many big ideas

We could talk about

But nothing that gets said

Gets us out of Cabbagetown

Oh, Cabbagetown

Oh, Cabbagetown

I will leave and I’ll return

Oh, Cabbagetown

I talked to my old granddad

As he fell into the sea

He said time and tide are one thing

That no one understands

I talked to my uncle Jack

As he tried to talk to me

With a bottle in one hand

And another in the other*

Oh, Cabbagetown

Oh, Cabbagetown

I will leave and I’ll return

Oh, Cabbagetown

Oh

Oh

Oh, Cabbagetown

Oh, Cabbagetown

I will leave and I’ll return

Oh, Cabbagetown
