It's the sad eyed goodbye
It's the bleak street,week kneed partings I recall
The brighter sun and the easier lays
When you're younger and life isn't to hard at all
It's the fantastic drowse
That bored you to rages of tears
To waste all your good times
It's the vertical hold all the things that you're told
And there's all the more reason
And your troubles are all very small
Out here on the street we'd gather and meet
With endlessly restless feet
More in the pool hall
With the down town chewing gum bums

Always thought I'd be something more
It ain't easy at all
It's easier from an arm chair
Have my eggs poached for breakfast I guess
I think I'll be Clint Eastwood
Let's try William the Conqueror
