lyrics

Big bus rattling on to Providence.
I’ve been laughing at my feet more often,
I’ve been laughing at my feet:
they’re like frogs.

Here’s the booze: where are the red ideals?
They grew old like the kids on that talk show
that were raisins at 17,
married to their rare disease.
“I take him to a topless bar.
We have a couple drinks,” the father says,
“Life is short.”

New York, New York:
I haven’t felt so heavy since the mail rooms
and the cubicles and the sunless days.
I might as well be paid by the hour.
Well, I know that I can hang my shoes
in any shitty city rotting on the branch
in New England,
but it’s hard to find booze on a Sunday.

Big bus rattling on to Providence.
