I fell into a place I’ve never been before. And now I’m in a place with someone new. I used to think that I could never win before. But we could win a battle or two. Today is like a day I’ve never seen before. And I’ve forgotten everything I knew. And now I’m with someone that I’ve been dreaming for. There is so much dreaming to do. If you can’t remember what you’re thinking of. And everything you do just floats away. Maybe you will find the place you’re dreaming of. The place that I fell into today.

My Sad Life 03:18
There isn’t anybody here. It’s a Sunday afternoon And I’m going ‘round in circles again. And there’s always a story behind me. Maybe it’s good you’re not around. ‘Cause you don’t really need to know Why I’m going ‘round in circles again. And there’s always a story behind me. When I was a lad I walked around feeling down. Couldn’t please my dad. That’s why I was a sad lad. Now I’m on my own. I got a car and I got a wife. She likes to be alone. So after dark I go for a drive. Da, da, da, da, da. Da, da, da, da, da. I never liked suburbia But that’s where they put me through. I was going ‘round in circles again. And there’s always a story behind me. Smoking a lot of herb – yeah! That is what I like to do When I’m going ‘round in circles again. And there’s always a story behind me. When I was a lad I walked around feeling down. Couldn’t please my dad. That’s why I was a sad lad. Back in ‘71 Morris Bros. and the Shanghai D’or. We were having fun. Egg Foo Young in ’71. Da, da, da, da, da. Da, da, da, da, da. Da, da, da, da, da. Da, da, da, da, da.

And all of the places are changing The walls and the buildings are falling down. And none of the people are staying Just me and my Sara remaining. Just me and my Sara remaining. And it was a Saturday evening. The women were wearing their dressing gowns. And I could hear one of them saying, “Just me and my Sara remaining. Just me and my Sara remaining. And what will we do now that no one’s around? What used to be up in the air’s on the ground. And we’re in the building that no one has found, Just me and my Sara are here. Remaining.” So why don’t you go to the window And watch as the trees are bowing down? It looks like the leaves are praying, And just me and my Sara remaining. Just me and my Sara remaining. “And what will we do now that no one’s around? What used to be up in the air’s on the ground. And we’re in the building that no one has found, Just me and my Sara are here. Remaining.”

I like to ride on the morning train. I feel ready on the morning train. I like to ride on the morning train. I feel optimistic on the morning train. But I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes around. Comes around. I saw her standing on the morning train. Looking out the window on the morning train. I saw her standing on the morning train. She touched my hand on the morning train. But I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes around. Comes around. I’m a candidate lyin’ on the morning train. I feel the whistle blowing on the morning train. I’m a candidate lyin’ on the morning train. I hear the moon rising on the morning train. But I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes. I’m no magic when the evening comes around. Comes around.

Mrs. Green 04:31
Excuse me, that’s a beautiful outfit Mrs. Green. That’s the most beautiful outfit I’ve ever seen. And you’re so pretty, and I’m so mean. And that’s a lovely outfit, Mrs. Green. I know I’m just your limousine driver, Mrs. Green. But I can’t help but tell you Just what I’ve seen. I’ve seen a joker who loves the queen. And that’s a lovely outfit, Mrs. Green. Can I take you out to the country, Mrs. Green? The air up by the mountain pass is calm and clean. And you will sleep and the road will lean. And I will drive so smoothly, Mrs. Green. If we ever get to heaven, Now Mrs. Green. I’m gonna meet St. Peter in my limousine. And he’ll look at you with his smile serene, And say, “that’s a lovely outfit. He’ll say, “that’s a lovely outfit. That’s a lovely outfit, Mrs. Green.

Of all the things That I ever saw. Once again, You impressed me With what I saw. Aaah. Now everything Never will be the same again. It looks like things Are gonna come around again. Aaah. Now everything Never will be the same again. It looks like things Are gonna come around again. And when you looked, You didn’t see what everybody saw. Up above, There was a sign that everybody saw. Everybody saw. Everyone saw. There was a sign that everybody saw. Everybody saw, everyone saw. There was a sign that everybody saw. Everybody saw.

My cravings are under control. No need to worry. The baby is sleeping. I got to break out of this body. No good in the city, it’s moving too fast. Give me my money. I’m a human being. I used to write music that people could sing. Give me my footsteps. Where did they go? I wish I had known that I needed them so. I’m taking me out for a spin To see how I do when I ask myself questions. I’m wearing an idiot grin, Cause I think I know when the danger will come. Give me my money. Don’t be afraid. Even idiots need to get paid. Give me my money. I’m not too fast. And it’s not just athletes who hate to come last. There’s nobody else in the room. Just me and my brain. We’re barely a couple. And there’s nothing else to explain. I don’t know who you are Or what you have done. Give me my money. I’m a human being. I used to write music that people could sing. Give me my footsteps. I’m not too fast. And it’s not just athletes who hate to come last

I went into a little store and they had Big women on the shelves. And they were talking to each other Very casually. La, la, la. La, la, la, la, la. La, la, la, la, la. And their eyes were big in their heads, And their bodies were vibrating on the shelves. And cans of orange extract were trembling Underneath the weight of the big women on the shelves. Big women on the shelves. Inside a little store. In Paris. Where we used to walk down the street And look around for the big women. And the manager said to me: “You must leave my store immediament.” But I was glued to the spot ‘cause I caught the eye of One of the beautiful big women on the shelves. I caught the eye, caught the eye. Big women on the shelves. And then she got down off the shelf and she jumped into my arms And we left the store. Big women on the shelves. Inside a little store. Big women on the shelves. In Paris. In Paris.

Diagonal S’s at the Motel 6 Sissy is playing her leitmotif again She’s so particular with her messages That’s my daughter, that’s my daughter. That’s my daughter. Sissy is pampered, Her man is coming to pump her for information Look at how he gets from here to there: Riding across fields of knowledge Badadum, badadum, bada dum bum bum. Badadum, dum, dum, bada dum bum bum. Badadum, badadum, bada dum dum Badadum dum dum. Meanwhile, somebody must be thinking, “Here we go.” Love: what a beautiful thing, love What a beautiful thing, love. Diamond thing on her finger. Hotel singer. Hotel singer with a crystal around her neck. That’s California, baby That’s California. That’s California, baby. That’s California. Magic shop is open, But everything inside is broken. How did we get so clumsy?? Clumsy with our fingers. I took a little piece of my own action and let myself evaporate in your swimming pool. Clumsy with our fingers. That’s California, baby That’s California. That’s California, baby. That’s California. Diagonal S’s at the Motel 6. Diagonal S’s at the Motel 6.

Little While 02:54
Can’t imagine anyone else Doing for me what you done. Like the glass you put on the shelf Shining in the sun. I want you to stay with me. Can’t imagine writing a song If you were somebody else. I would have wondered where you had gone. Maybe the Arctic Shelf. I want you to stay with me, I want you to stay with me. I want you to stay with me. Little while. We were ready to move apart. We were ready to leave. Can’t imagine where I would go If you had gone away. I would be walking into the snow Watching the penguins play. I want you to stay with me, I want you to stay with me. I want you to stay with me. Little while.

Hippy Store 02:06
Everybody knows That I’m afraid of The Hippy Store. Afraid of The Hippy Store. Hippy Store. I could spend my life With those people in The Hippy Store. People in The Hippy Store. Hippy Store. Aaaaahh, Hippy Store Aaaaahh, Hippy Store. Hippy Store. I know what they did In the basement of The Hippy Store. Basement of the Hippy Store. Basement of the Hippy Store. Basement of the Hippy Store. Basement of the Hippy Store.

Cave 03:50
I have been living in a cave undiscovered. I write on the walls. I drink from the falls. I can use my glasses And start me a fire. Watch how it burns. How much do you earn? Now that you’re living in a corporate nightmare You look so sad, But you don’t have to feel bad. ‘Cause I have been living in a cave undiscovered. I write on the walls. I drink from the falls.

Mr. Feldman 03:19
Can we leave tomorrow or can we leave today? You know I’d agree with everything that you say. ‘Cause I got money. That’s the one thing I got plenty of. And if we’re ever gonna leave the room. You know I’d forget everything very soon. And when I get old, I’ll remember everything that I said. Baby, you’re teaching me ‘bout the value of everything. Now I know the value of it is: living with you. Baby, you’re teaching me ‘bout the value of everything. Now I know the value of it is: living with you. And if we ever get out of here alive It’ll be a miracle that we both survive. And our money will take us to an island off the coast of the earth. And remember what I used to say: “The sun’s gonna rise at the end of the day. And when I get old I’ll remember everything that I said – In bed. Baby, you’re teaching me ‘bout the value of everything. Now I know the value of it is: living with you. Baby, you’re teaching me ‘bout the value of everything. Now I know the value of it is: living with you. Living with you. Living with you. “Mr. Feldman . . .

Until the end of time. See you in the shadows. See you in the shadows. See you in the shadows of time. Again.
