Everybody’s Out of TownGoing against the grain of the easy listening label, Hal David tackled the death of American cities due to White Flight to the suburbs. Burt Bacharach underplayed the soft-sell politics with an old-fashioned musical arrangement and the laid-back delivery of B.J. Thomas:

Where have the people gone Seems like there’s no one hangin’ on Look through the windows The houses are empty Hey, everybody’s out of town Seems like I’m the only one around.
All of the streets are bare No traffic tie-ups anywhere Don’t have to wait for a seat at the movie Hey, everybody’s out of town Seems like, I’m the only one around. Everyone’s moved out from the ghetto Lots of space Empty apartments No more pollution Plenty of classrooms everyplace
 And it looks like we’re ready To give it one more try This time there’ll be no alibi I’m gonna send out a message to Noah Hey, better send some people down Everyone on earth Is out of town

Going against the grain of the easy listening label, Hal David tackled the death of American cities due to White Flight to the suburbs. Burt Bacharach underplayed the soft-sell politics with an old-fashioned musical arrangement and the laid-back delivery of B.J. Thomas:

Where have the people gone
Seems like there’s no one hangin’ on
Look through the windows
The houses are empty
Hey, everybody’s out of town
Seems like I’m the only one around.

All of the streets are bare
No traffic tie-ups anywhere
Don’t have to wait for a seat at the movie
Hey, everybody’s out of town
Seems like, I’m the only one around.

Everyone’s moved out from the ghetto
Lots of space
Empty apartments
No more pollution
Plenty of classrooms everyplace


And it looks like we’re ready
To give it one more try
This time there’ll be no alibi
I’m gonna send out a message to Noah
Hey, better send some people down
Everyone on earth
Is out of town
