I've Been To Town
Frank Sinatra

I've Been To Town

I've been to town, I've walked the highways and in the suburbs too
I've done somethings I never thought I'd ever do
Now as I stand here looking down at you, you ask me why it is I frown
I guess it's 'cause I've been to town

I've been to town beyond the boulevard and down the beach
I've learned some things that only time can teach
For instance, love is more than just a speech
It's got to find a common ground
I know 'cause I've been to town

Don't tell me any more, I can't waste any more years
I've seen my image in your eyes
Dissolve in disappointed tears

I've been to town, you ask me do I know the milky way
I do, and furthermore I'd like to say
It isn't milky white, it's dingy gray
Especially when your world breaks down
I know because I've been to town
