Michael wakes you up with sweets
Sidewalk markets locked up tight
There's oil on the puddles in taffeta patterns
In colored arrangements

Michael from mountains
Know that I will know you

He sings and its dark when the clouds come by
Like puppets on strings hanging in the sky
Their mothers will scold
To keep away cold till the sidewalks are dry
Michael leads you up the stairs
Cats come crying to the key
There's rain in the window
You want to know all
