The World Is Just A 'B' Movie Meets Reno, Funtown

This song is by Bob Lind and appears on the album The Best of Bob Lind – You Might Have Heard My Footsteps (1993).

When first I came to Reno
I was kicked at cussed at ego busted
Shaggy dusty maladjusted
Looking for an open door to get in off the street

I wound up being pushed into
A businessman's convention luncheon
Torn and tattered briefcaes battered
Got out just before they branded beatnik on my feet

It's a B-movie world and the cast is on vacation on location every day
In Reno funtown U S A

Escaping down an alley I was
Sickened chicken panic stricken
Turned and seen a sports arena
Ran into a snarling mob of roller derby fans

Reception there was less than warm
With knuckles teeth and hairy arms
I fell into the first motel
And closed the door and hid myself below the TV stand

It's a B-movie world and the cast is on vacation on location every day
In Reno funtown U S A

The maid came by for room inspection
Throwing trays in my direction
Sanitized for my protection
I jumped out the window, ran into a grocery store

I didn't have a shopping list
They thought I was a communist
Who fluoridated frozen fish
They put me in a chafing dish and rolled me out the door

It's a B-movie world and the cast is on vacation on location every day
In Reno funtown U S A

I made it just in time to get
A ticket on a super jet
As everyone was making bets
On just how long the plane would fly before it took a dive

Reno has a law forbidding
Bums to look at married women
Tuxes must be worn to swim in
If you're there with shaggy hair you may not leave alive

It's a B-movie world and the cast is on vacation on location every day
In Reno funtown U S A
In Reno funtown U S A
