30 blocks to Fordham Road,
That's a bad neighborhood,
Gray house on the corner,
I know I shouldn't do what it is I could.
The stone Mary in the garden,
She let me know she watching,
She said I better get walking,
I better walk away.
I don't know why it is that I wanna stay,
I don't know what it is that makes me feel this way,
But I'm not gonna do what I hear me say,
I'm just gonna walk,
I'm gonna walk away.
I catch a dollar in the wind and I buy a cup of coffee,
There's a place on Valentine that still charge ninety cent.
I keep on walking in the daytime and in my eyes it's always night time,
And I like it when it's me at night,
'Cause that's when all the stars come out.
I don't know why it is that I wanna stay,
I don't know what it is that makes me feel this way,
But I'm not gonna do what I hear me say,
I'm just gonna walk,
I'm gonna walk away.
It's the greatest,
It's the greatest day.
It's the greatest,
It's the greatest day.
I'm not gonna do what I hear me say,
I'm just gonna walk,
I'm gonna walk away.
