Window In The Dark

 

There's a whistle in a burnin' town

One cup o' water in a leaky ol' bucket

There's a thorn on that side o' town

Who's the drunkard nurse who's nursin' blind

 

I've tasted scraps o' careless men

Wasted my own guts in the mornin'

A precious fat girl's in her room

Where's a window in the dark when you need one

Now where

 

            It's another's life in this big city

            Feels kinda strange now ain't it a pity

            Fast as a wheel man bleedin' permission

            Where's a window in the dark when you need one

            Now, now where

 

Dancin' hounds 'round an ol' dead horse

Got gallopin' eyes cross-eyed to the ceilin'

The world is round and coarse enough

Where's a window in the dark when you need one

Now,  now where

 

            It's another's life in this big city

            Feels kinda strange now ain't it a pity

            Fast as a wheel man bleedin' permission

            Where's a window in the dark when you need one

            Now, now where

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

There's a whistle in a burnin' town

One cup o' water in a leaky ol' bucket

There's a thorn on that side o' town

Where's a window in the dark when you need one

Now, now where

Where, where, where...
