Roxy Music – Street Life lyrics

(ferry)

Wish everybody would leave me alone -yeah
Theyґre always calling on my telephone
When I pick it up thereґs no one there
So I walk outside just to take the air
Come on with me cruising down the street
Who knows what youґll see, who you might meet
This brave new worldґs not like yesterday -
It can take you higher than the milky way
Now iґm blinded I can't really see - yeah
No more bright lights confusing me - no
Donґt ask me why iґm feeling blue
'cause loving you is all I can do
Hey good-looking boys - gather around
The sidewalk papers gutter-press you down
All those lies can be so unkind,
They can make you feel like youґre losing your mind
Street life
Street life
Street life
What a life
Back to nature boys - vasser girls too
Watch what you say, or think, or do
Continental-style strasse girls might
But you know exactly if itґs wrong or right
Education is an important key - yes
But the good lifeґs never won by degrees - no
Pointless passing through harvard or yale
Only window shopping - it's strictly no sale
Week end starts friday soon after eight
Your jet black magic helps you celebrate
You may be stranded if you stick around
- and thatґs really something...
