Major Parkinson - Downtown Boogie lyrics

DOWNTOWN BOOGIE

Six o'clock time to stop
and count the blisters on my feet
I've been swinging at the solitary home
for caviar on plates of chrome

I rub my head eyes going red
I try to picture myself back there
in the eruption of the dreams that turned to lead
on the ivy covered bed

My life's a downtown boogie every night and day
Lovers come and lovers go, but that is just a part of the play
Now I got new shoes for downtown boogie, the endless cabaret
Cry your little heart out
Everything is gonna be okay, tomorrow

Seven o'clock the sun is up
and like a bullet in a china shop
In these anachronistic hours of today
the belly of the moon is gray
Now there's nobody here but Fred Astaire
Frank Sinatra, Doris Day
Oh Olivia de Havilland my bride
I'll keep you by my side

And when you're feeling blue
take a ride with the tinkerbelly boy
Step up for some pedestrian city joy
'cause we won't be here tomorrow
But it sure as hell was fun

My life's a downtown boogie every night and day
Lovers come and lovers go, but that is just a part of the play
Now I got new shoes for downtown boogie, tap dance and ballet
Cry your little heart out
Everything is gonna be okay, tomorrow
