Roxy Music Tour 2001


Street Life

Wish everybody would leave me alone - yeah
They´re always calling on my telephone
When I pick it up there´s no one there
So I walk outside just to take the air
Come on with me cruising down the street
Who knows what you´ll see, who you might meet
This brave new world´s not like yesterday -
It can take you higher than the milky way
Now I´m blinded I can't really see - yeah
No more bright lights confusing me - no
Don´t ask me why I´m feeling blue
'Cause loving you is all I can do
Hey good-looking boys - gather around
The sidewalk papers gutter - press you down
All those lies can be so unkind,
They can make you feel like you´re losing your mind
Street Life
Street Life
Street Life
What a Life
Back to nature boys - Vasser girls too
Watch what you say, or think, or do
Continental-style strasse girls might
But you know exactly if it´s wrong or right
Education is an important key - yes
But the good life´s never won by degrees - no
Pointless passing through Harvard or Yale
Only window shopping - it's strictly no sale
Week end starts Friday soon after eight
Your jet black magic helps you celebrate
You may be stranded if you stick around
- And that´s really something...
