Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home 
Sleep pretty darling, do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

You know your stripper from your paint
You know your sinner from your saint
Whenever heaven's doors are shut
You kick them open

Soon I'll be on fries; then the grill.
In a year or two, I'll make assistant manager,
and that's when the big bucks start rolling in.

Just for a tender while, I kissed the smile upon her face
For it was fiesta and love had its day
South of the border, down Mexico way

so that, sometimes blocked in, sometimes reaching out,
one moment your life is a stone in you, and the next a star.

I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
I know he's there, but I just had to call

And yet ulster coats, why, you will not need
When you ride up in the chariot in the morn.
But yer golden slippers must be nice and clean

We saw the wrecks of buildings 
And ships that sank in starlight
We saw the ghosts of angels
That spoke of falls from tremendous heights

I have the only key to your heart
I can stop you falling apart
Try today, you'll find this way
Come on and give me a chance to say

365 7/7

 


Such was the wreck of the Hesperus
In the midnight and the snow!
Christ save us all from a  death like this 
On the reef of Norman's Woe!

And expect them to rise for the occasion
Don't it gratify when you see it materialize 
Right in front of your eyes by surprise

I'm looking at the future solid as a rock because of you
Again and again
Want to be here and I wanna be there
Living just like you, living just like me

Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it's furthest from my mind
I'm just lookin' for a dear, dear friend of mine

The history of the distribution of wealth has always been deeply political,
and it cannot be reduced to purely economic mechanisms.

And she said losing love 
Is like a window in your heart
Everybody sees you're blown apart
Everybody sees the wind blow

People go naked and pick up these trails
Someone before me laid down the rails
When it's loaded up too heavy
This engine fails

I like mine with lettuce and tomato
Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Well good god almighty which way do I steer?
