Billy Joel Allentown (Kohuept) Lyrics

Last updated: 09/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

(“This song is about young people living in the northeast of America.”)
(“Эта песня - о молодых людях, живущих на северо-востоке Америки.")
(“Their lives are miserable because the steel factories are closing down.”)
("Их жизни несчастны, потому что стальные фабрики закрывают.")
(“They desperately wanna leave.”)
("Они отчаянно хотят уехать.")
(“But they stayed because they were growing up to believe that things are going to get better.”)
("Но они остались, потому что они росли, чтобы полагать, что вещи собираются поправляться.")
(“Maybe that sounds familiar.”)
("Возможно, который кажется знакомым.")

Yeah. Ssssh! Ugh! Hah!

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 USO
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-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
Hey hey hey, oh whoa oh, ssssh! Ugh! Hah!

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
Aw they never really helped us at all
No, they never taught us what was real
Iron and Coke and 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-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
Hey hey hey

Every child had a pretty good shot
To get at least as far as their old man got
Something happened on the way to that place
They threw an American Flag in our fa-a-a-ace, oh oh oh
Ssssh! Ugh! Hah!

And I'm living here in Allentown
And it's hard to keep a good man down
But I won't be getting up today-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
Hey hey hey

Hey hey hey, oh whoa oh, (Sssh! Ugh! Hah!)
And it's getting very hard to stay-ay-ay-ay-yea-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
And we're living here in Allentown

Ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh...
Ooh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh...
