|Times Square, New York City, Simon Gaon|
They say there's always magic in the air.
But when you're walkin' down that street,
And you ain't had enough to eat,
The glitter rubs right off and you're nowhere.
They say the women treat you fine
But lookin' at them just gives me the blues.
How ya gonna make some time,
When all you got is one thin dime,
And one thin dime won't even shine your shoes.
They say that I won't last too long
I'll catch a Greyhound bus for home they all say.
But they're all wrong, I know they are,
'Cause I can play this here guitar.
I won't quit till I'm a star
--Mike Stollar, Jerry Leiber, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil
|One who didn't take the Greyhound bus for home, |
but vividly recalls the urge to do so.
