Lyrics
saw a man break down on New Year's Eve Drop to his knees and cry hysterically Screaming nonsense you would not believe On the sidewalk right in front of me And I asked him Mr. what's the matter Calm down are you alright Looks like you could use a doctor And how much have you had to drink tonight Remember this is just a temporary trip If you stay down too long you can sometimes lose your grip. I helped him get back on his feet again And brushed the slush off his overcoat He wiped his eyes he shook my hand and then Before he walked away he sadly cleared his throat Then he said son I'm just old and lonely But thank you for your concern Here's wishing you a Happy New Year I wished him one back in return Remember this is just a temporary trip If you stay down too long you can sometimes lose your grip. Then he said son I'm just old and lonely But thank you for your concern Here's wishing you a Happy New Year I wished him one back in return Remember this is just a temporary trip If you stay down too long you can sometimes lose your grip Remember this is just a temporary trip If you stay down too long you can sometimes lose it.
