Matchbooks of lonely places I'll never find
Clocks on wall spaces, some peace of mind
I'll never find
What good would it be,
What good would it be,
If you could change every river
That ran through your life and mine?

Cos from here to the county line
Counts one hundred and ninety-nine
Oh the Scarsdale will be on time
You know shoeshine costs a dime

Hootenanny Annie had a party in the yard
You could smell the barbie out on Ocean Boulevard
Where I went to find, some peace of mind
What good would it be,
What good would it be,
If you could change every heartache
That ran through your life and mine?

Cos from here to the county line
Counts one hundred and ninety-nine
Oh the Scarsdale will be on time
You know shoeshine costs a dime

With the washroom lights of a bowling alley in your face
You know your car and your plates are really out of place
That goes for your soul
Some holy rock 'n' roll
What good would it be,
What good would it be,
If you could change every heartache
That ran through your life and mine?
