lyrics

Her lips had been frosted and her colours had been done
She wore her hair in a chignon, denied it was a bun
She suffered from depression though she didn’t know its causes
She occupied herself with what foie gras and vichyssoise is
She popped pills for her nerves
Drank a crisp Chablis with lunch
She packed a Finnish vodka to pour in her fruit punch
She had a tendency to get quite lippy
Her name was Tippy

His hairline was receding and his interests were quite varied
And so were all the rumours as to why he never married
He collected Royal Dalton. He was pinch lipped and prissy.
He had a twin Pekingese called Debbie and Missy
He was partial to antiques and Victorian button hooks
He gave the high track team such burning hungry looks
He had a reputation as the local child molester
His name was Chester

I hated these people from my hometown
Hated these people from my hometown
So I mailed them fire bomb
Whoops I killed the people in my hometown

She drank pots of fresh coffee and smoked a Marlboro light
She played a mean game of Canasta well into the night
She had unsightly small grey hairs sprouting from her double chin
And no one had ever seen her without her curlers in
She wore purple toreador pants and lime green sleeveless tops
She wore purple plastic flowers on the toes of her flip flops
Her husband was known as Mr. Sherri-Lynn
Her name was Sherri-Lynn

I hated these people from my hometown
Hated these people from my hometown
So I mailed them fire bomb
Whoops I killed the people in my hometown
(Everybody sing)

I hated these people from my hometown
Hated these people from my hometown
So I mailed them fire bomb
Whoops I killed the people in my hometown

My hometown
My hometown
