ExcerptName
They sent a carrier out from Norfolk / To pick [them] up for free
He was working in a night club / That's where he played the saxophone
I cruise from Houston to Canal Street / A misfit and a rebel
[He] will get you high tonight / And take you to your special island
Remember [them] / They left their childhood on every acre
They're sharing a drink they call loneliness / But it's better than drinking alone
[He's] driving through the city tonight / Through the lights in a hot new rent-a-car
He's quick with a joke / Or to light up your smoke / But there's someplace that he'd rather be
[He] works in a grocery store / Saving his pennies for someday
[He] was born in the spring of '44 / And never saw his father anymore
So if you see [her] / And if you work with the rod and the reel
[They] all come from somewhere / It's so familiar, their foreign faces
Her eyes are saying, ''Talk to me, talk to me'' / But her attitude is ''Don't waste my time''
[He] is a friend of mine / we get some money and we buy cheap wine
We wore matador boots / Only [they] had them / With the Cuban heel
[They] were still going steady in the summer of '75 / When they decided the marriage would be at the end of July
You say you know me / But I see only what you're paid to show me
ExcerptName
You had the Dom Perignon in your hand and the spoon up your nose
His honor is pure and his courage as well / He's fair and he's true and he's boring as hell
You got a nice white dress and a party on your Confirmation
They sit at the bar and put bread in [his] jar / And say, ''Man, what are you doing here?''
Never sang on stages / Needs no orchestration / Melody comes easy
He says, ''Son, can you play me a melody? / I'm not really sure how it goes''
Of all the people in the world that I know / You're the best place to go / When I cry, when I cry
I thought I was the Duke of Earl / When I made it with [her] in the Chevrolet
And if he can't drive with a broken back / At least he can polish the fenders
I'm her machine / She can punch all the keys / She can push any button / I was programmed through
[She] is practicing politics / As the businessmen slowly get stoned
[He] dances and the audience applauds / Though he's bathed in sweat he hasn't lost his style
You ought to know by now / You can pay [him] with the overtime
She didn't need another lover / All she wanted was the sax
She's waiting out in Shantytown / She's gonna pull the curtains down for me…
[He's] still in the Navy / And probably will be for life
I was your lover but I though I was your friend / I loved you but I thought I was your friend
ExcerptName
[He] is a real estate novelist / Who never had time for a wife
He knows he's such a credit to the game / But the Yankees grab the headlines every time
We had the Midas touch / Until we met [them] / And they exhausted our supplies
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday / And [he] gives me a smile
Save a place for me / ... / Turn your transistor on and let the music play
[She] left a note on the door / She said, ''Sonny, move out to the country''
Now you're in trouble, maybe she's an intellectual / ... / Or maybe she's the quiet type who's into heavy metal
When I pressed her for a reason, she refused to even answer / It was then I felt [him] kick me right between the eyes
Will you ever change? / When will you write your masterpiece?
I'd like to spend a day or two / But I can't stay that long
There's nothing else I can do / 'Cause I'm doing it all for [her]
[He's] taking care of things for a while / And his style is so right for troubadors
When she smiles she gives everything to me / When she's all alone she cries
He never had a sweetheart and he never had a home / But the cowboy and the rancher knew his name
She's been living in her white bread world / As long as anyone with hot blood can
