The Magnetic Fields – The Luckiest Guy On The Lower East Side lyrics

Andy would bicycle across town in the rain to bring you
Candy and John would buy the gown for you to wear to the
Prom with Tom the astronomer who'd name a star for you
(C): But I'm the luckiest guy on the Lower East Side
Cause I've got wheels and you want to go for a ride
Harry is the one I think you'll marry but it's Chris
That you kissed after school I'm a fool, there's no doubt
But when the sun comes out and only when the sun
Comes out... (C) The day is beautiful and so are you
My car is ugly but then I'm ugly too I know you'd
Never give me a second glance but when the weather's
Nice all the other guys don't stand a chance
I know Professor Blumen makes you feel like a woman
But when the wind is in your hair you laugh like a little girl
So you share secrets with Lou but we've got secrets too
Well, one: I only keep this heap for you
Cause I'm the ugliest guy on the Lower East Side
But I've got wheels and you want to go for a ride
Want to go for a ride?
