Lyrics

Well I was walking down the street just the other day I had a double headed nickel and a bill to pay There was bubblegum a’blistered on the hot cement And I was waiting like patience on a monument Well I rolled a little spliff and tightened up my shoes And I went to the corner where I lit the fuse Disgusted by the loneliness I couldn’t lose I sat and wrote a little verse to the ‘rona blues I said I always wanna do the things I used to do But everybody got a job and works enough for two We could have a little party at the end of the day But everybody had a family and moved away So I’m sitting with a paper soakin’ on my tongue And feeling better than I did back when I was young Now I’m seeing music that nobody else can see With all the colors like a symphony surrounding me
