Hey bus driver, keep the change,
Bless your children, give them names
Don’t trust men who walk with canes
Drink this and you’ll grow wings on your feet
Broadway Mary, Joan Fontaine,
Advertiser on a downtown train
Christmas crier bustin’ cane
He’s in love again
Where dock worker’s dreams mix
with panther’s schemes
To someday own the rodeo
Tainted women in Vistavision
Perform for out-of-state kids at the late show
Wizard imps and sweat sock pimps,
Interstellar mongrel nymphs
Rex said that lady left him limp.
Love’s like that (sure it is).
Queen of diamonds, ace of spades,
Newly discovered lovers of the everglades
They take out a full-page ad in the trades
To announce their arrival
And Mary Lou, she found out how to cope,
She rides to heaven on a gyroscope
The Daily News asks her for the dope
She said, «
Man, the dope’s that there’s still hope».
Senorita, Spanish rose,
Wipes her eyes and blows her nose
Uptown in Harlem she throws a rose
To some lucky, young matador.
