I hear the girl downstairs
Out singing in the rain
A stranger in the crowd
That came to talk to me again
My, my the moon is high
Wont you give your fond farewell
Kicking the car wont get you far
You better keep that dollar bill

My old machine is running clean
As the morning starts to cry
Sunlight falls in rays of gold
Just like money from the sky
But don’t forget the cigarette
In the ashtray by the door
When the fire burns out
All hope is gone
You can’t smoke ‘em
When they’re cold

Some folks condescend
To try to see my point of view
And some folks understand me
Or at least they think they do
But you and I just wasted time
Till there was nothing left to show
And I was glad when you came by
But I was twice as glad to go

In every roadside diner
The coffee’s just the same
And the waitress smiles politely
When I call her by her name
But it’s never quite as good
As I imagined it would be
One of these days
I’m gonna change my ways
Oh, honey, just you wait and see
