John Inmon



Well the sun went down

On Easy Street

She's been closed down for the winter

She stopped to take a rest

Or maybe push us from the nest

It's just a dance that the shadows do



Chorus:

And it's goodbye, goodbye Easy Street

Once you say goodbye, it is goodbye

And it's goodbye, goodbye Easy Street

This is goodbye, this is goodbye



At the carnival

In the sweet summer time

You get sick from eating too much candy

And the leaves they change

And you change your train

It's just a dance that the shadows do



Chorus



Like a bell that must be rung

Or a song that should be sung

Or a story that's never ending

She'll hold you to her breast

Then she'll put you to the test

It's just a dance that the shadows do



Chorus
