Little jimmys gone way out of the back streets Out of the window, into the falling rain, And hes right on time, right on time. Thats why broken arrow waved his finger Down the road so dark and narrow In the evening just before the sunday sixbells chime And way out on the highway All the dogs are barkin way down below And you wander away from your hillside retreated view Went to wanderin nordhbridge way out on the railroad Together all the tipping trucks will unload All the scrapbooks built together stuck with glue And Ill stand beside you, beside you
Oh child, to never wonder why To never, never, never, never wonder why at all To never, never, never, never wonder why Its gotta be, it has to be
Across the crystal pavements Way across the country where the hillside mountains glide The dynamo of your smile caressed the Barefoot virgin child To wander past your window in the nighttime cross the floor Crying as ecstasy surrounds you Through the night air your proud time is open Go well against the pointed idle breeze
Past the footlights of the brazen silence easy In the night you cry and you want spirits to tell you Everythings alright Go ahead and do it one more time baby Youre satisfied I guess, youre way up and the sky comes down Kaleidoscope
Open and just hold the lantern in the doorway, For the freedom of it. And you take the night air through your nostrils and you breathe In out, in out And you breathe just like that, just like that
How does it get you when it gets you When it gets ya You may not know its got you until you turn around And Ill point a finger at you, point a finger at you You say which way, which way Thats alright, weve gotten hip to it Goin to do it right now. Behind you Beside you, beside you
Oh child to never wonder why To never, never, never, never wonder why at all Never never never never wonder why at all.
