Eleanor put those boots back on
Kick the heels into the Brooklyn dirt
I know it isn't dignified to run
But if you run

You can run to the Coney Island rollercoaster
Ride to the highest point
And leap across the filthy water
Leap until the Gulf Stream’s brought you down

I could be there when you land

So Eleanor take a Greenpoint three-point turn
Towards the hidden sun
You know you are so elegant when you run
Oh if you run

You can run to that statue with the dictionary
Climb to her fingernail and
Leap, yeah take an atmospheric leap
Let the jet stream set you down

I could be there when you land

So Eleanor put those boots back on
Put the boots back on and run
Come on over here

    A really romantic song ? the singer is inviting eleanor to take a leap from high points near new york into the jet stream, and to touch down eventually in england, where he'll be waiting to meet her. ("statue with the dictionary" is the large lady with the book and torch ? the statue of liberty. )
