There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

He barely scrapes scraps for food
never eating the right things
An unhealthy lifestyle he has
A heart attack it’ll surely bring

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

He doesn’t see many people
his friends too busy for him
In this town that goes nowhere
and hasn’t anywhere it’s been

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

So he walks the streets all the same
leafy, quiet and boring too
Nothing much goin’ on in this town
no wonder he gets the blues

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

Boarded up shops and bars
close all over town
People walk by heads low
no smiles just frowns

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

No industry for work too
having to travel to find work
But prices gone up on everything
frustrations in his heart does lurk

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

He may be forced to move elsewhere
away from the nowhere town
But nowhere’sville sucks him in
and there, like others, he’ll drown

There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill

Hands in pockets he walks to a pub
orders and sits down alone
Sips his drink and stares into space
listening to all that moan

(Chorus)
There’s a man who lives alone
in nowhere town in nowhere’sville
He has no job in this small place
goin’ nowhere with time to kill
Goin’ nowhere with time to kill
Goin’ nowhere with time to kill…
