City life is closing in on me
Bus timetable'll be my elergy
Up at seven every working day
It's a week-by-week charade
General panic in the marketplace
Could not stand the pace
And as the peak-hour traffic jams below
People come and go
Wandered down along the river last night
Until the first-light struck me down
Padding homeward on the inside lane
Dodging rubber stains
People talking in a seaside bar
Sometimes I get that gypsy urge to travel far
You know I'll disappear some long weekend
Stretch out along some busted jetty

You got to go
You got to roll
You got to change
And be a little strange
And one long day
One long night
Soft, low words
One long day
Cotton dresses, a Spanish border town
From the subway, the crowds heading home
In technicolor, a million miles away

City ways
