LYRICS:
DON’T BOTHER TO SHOW ME
THE ST. REGIS ROOF
OR FEED ME A COCKTAIL
THAT’S TWO HUNDRED PROOF.
I CAN’T WEAR BLACK GLOVES
AND I’M NEVER ALOOF.
I’M A HOMETOWN GIRL.

DON’T TAKE ME TO SARDI’S
I’D STAMMER AND STARE.
I SLEEP THROUGH THE OPERA;
I REALLY DON’T CARE.
I USE THE WRONG KNIFE
TO CUT CAMEMBERT.
I’M A HOMETOWN GIRL.

I COME FROM A LITTLE PLACE ABOUT A HALF A MILE
FROM A POND BESIDE A MILL IN THE OLD NEW ENGLAND STYLE.
THE SKY IS GRAY IN WINTER, WITH A DAY OR TWO OF BLUE.
THE PEOPLE’S TEETH ARE BAD,
BUT THEIR HEARTS ARE ALWAYS TRUE.
SO…

I’LL SKIP MONTE CARLO,
ALLERGIC TO DICE.
SLEEPING IN SATIN
WOULD BE AWFULLY NICE,
BUT IN A CHEAP ROOM,
BABY, I’D LOVE YOU TWICE.
I’M A HOMETOWN GIRL.
JUST A HOMETOWN GIRL.
