Lloyd Cole – Hey Rusty lyrics

Hey rusty
's a long time
's like yesterday
Stealing cigarettes
And laughing as they chased us
Down the boulevards
Then I got a job
White collar
Turn coat
You just spun around and walked
Said we wouldn't meet again
Hey rusty don't hang up
I feel so young
Hey rusty don't hang up
Cause we're still young
I just need one friend
She said hey
Don't take it so bad
She said hey
It wasn't so much
We just ran out of gas
Or something like that
That's when I
I crashed my car
Not by chance
And not out of love
Then I walked out of that job
You should've seen their faces
Hey rusty don't hang up
I just need one friend
And we're not finished yet
No way
Hey rusty
I changed my mind
What d'you say we start again
No I mean it this time
Stealing cigarettes
And laughing as they chase us
Down the boulevards
