Lyrics: bobby says he thinks he'd like to
marry into money he just
needs to find a rich girl without class
becky says I remember when you were
the nicest guy in town but now you're
sinking to the bottom with the rest
john and gene just cant agree on
how the town should mend the seams
of a budget that keeps getting out of hand
mary stands behind the grill
she nods her head she knows the drill
the only news she hears is secondhand
day after day she thanks god it stays the same

did you hear do you know
well I don’t know for sure
it's just something that I overheard
from pat and carolina
everything you'd ever want to know
at the northway diner

old man felts is getting ill
someone saw his final will
and that good for nothing son is out of luck
the house and farm the old woodshed
a vacation house in hilton head
is going to his mistress in new york
it's supposed to snow a foot today
same thing they said yesterday
the ski resorts are gonna lose their shirt
local politicians say that
better days are on the way
well tell that to the people out of work


just make sure you tell all the folks
huddled 'round their eggs and toast
but if you say my name and where this information came
I'll deny it to my grave

did you hear do you know
well I don’t know for sure
it's just something that I overheard
from pat and carolina
everything you'd ever want to even if you didn't think you
ought to know but now you do I know I can confide in you
just off the interstate
everybody knows your name
at mary's northway diner
at the northway diner
