There’s two dollars left in the wallet on my lap
Man, it has seen better days.
The heating bill is overdue
And the landlord won’t stop calling.
I disconnected the phone but
He keeps banging on the window pane.
I’m packin’ up this battered suitcase
Filled with diamond rings, a Santa outfit and my taxidermist’s will
He left me all of his stock
And I’ve got just one question for you:
Could your porch use a stuffed rabbit?
I saw this girl I used to know
She wore the North Wind like a shawl
Wrapped around her neck.
Her arms were like trumpets
Hair like a fisherman’s net.
I’m on the street corner
Small change in my bowler hat
Buskin’ for a Greyhound ticket
Headin’ back to
