SONG LYRICS

With darkness diminished
The rising of the dawn
I’ve found myself a real good place on Broadway
With Morning traffic building
To the sound of beeping horns
I fold up my house made of cardboard
If there’s no sunshine and it rains
I’ll  jump a turnstile Ride a subway train
I’ve knocked around this city for to long A hopeless vagabond
I’m sure no one will miss me when I’m gone
Out on  the sidewalk
Out on the sidewalk 
In the heat of midday
Traffic’s at a crawl
I’ll pack up and head out
looking for shade     
 Well It’s been one long hot summer
Soon will come the fall
 And when winter comes the cold won’t go away 
a man for all the seasons you might say
Destitute and homeless
One step from a grave 
I’ve knocked around this city for to long
A hopeless vagabond  
I’m sure no one will miss me when I’m gone
Out on  the sidewalk
Out on the sidewalk 
Behind the gourmet restaurants
Are dumpsters painted green
I eat the food that people throw away
Dishes tossed together
A banquet of decay
Out on the sidewalk
Out on the sidewalk  
Street corner hustlers
Are selling what they may
Hot dogs to plastic bags of sorrow
From Ivory  white towers
where all the moneys made
The business suits are leaving till tomorrow
They hail a taxi heading home
With all the empathy of a Highly polished stone
I’ve knocked around this city for too long
A hopeless vagabond  
I’m sure no one will miss me when I’m gone
Out on  the sidewalk
Out on the sidewalk
