Murray McLauchlan – Down By The Henry Moore lyrics

I walked down to Kensington Market
Bought me a fish to fry
I went to the Silver Dollar
Looked a stranger in the eye
A friend of mine says
That he don't think this town's so out of sight
But he's got shades 'round his soul
And he thinks he's seen the light

Singin' don't you want to keep on moving
Don't you want to get undone
Don't you want to change from losing
Don't you want to have some fun

I went down to the Palm Grove
I was jumpin' around the room
I was wearing my sneakers down
And castin' away my gloom
This fat girl come up and grabbed me
She sat me on her knee
She said you wrote that Farmer's Song
And she spilled a drink on me

Singin' don't you want to keep on moving
Don't you want to get undone
Don't you want to change from losing
Don't you want to have some fun

I went down to the Henry Moore
Skated all in the Square
The moon above my shoulder
And the ice was in my hair
Alone but never lonely
That's how I like to be
If you want to have fun
Like a rock'n roll bum
Don't think the worst of me

Singin' don't you want to keep on moving
Don't you want to get undone
Don't you want to change from losing
Don't you want to have some fun

    This song could be confusing to anyone not familiar with Toronto as that is where all the places are. Kensington Market is a bohemian market area that was very ethnic when this song was written but is now more of a hipster hangout. The Palm Grove Lounge was a somewhat seedy downtown bar that had many greats there as live entertainment.

    The Henry Moore of the title is a statue called The Archer that is in Nathan Phillips Square, an area in front of Toronto's City Hall. The square has a large reflecting pool that is turned into a public skating rink in winter.
