  1. Town Without Pity

From the recording Black & Gold

(by Dimitri Tiomkin & Ned Washington)

Lyrics

When you're young and so and love as we
And bewildered by the world we see
Why do people hurt us so?
Only those in love would know
What a town without pity can do

If we stop to gaze upon a star
People talk about how bad we are
Ours is not an easy age
We're like tigers in a cage
What a town without pity can do

The young have problems, many problems
We need an understanding heart
Why don't they help us, try to help us?
Before this clay and granite planet falls apart!

Take these eager lips and hold me fast
I'm afraid this kind of joy can't last
How can we keep love alive?
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two?
What a town without pity can do

How can we keep love alive?
How can anything survive
When these little minds tear you in two?
What a town without pity can do
No, it isn’t very pretty what a town without pity can do
