lyrics

Here is the corner
I lost my first lover
Here is the gray ground
Where I carved my name down
If you're creeping down seventy-sixth street
And you see my light on,
Do stop in and jump my bones

Here's the traffic island
I weep among the carnations
Here's the subway stairs
I descend to voyage elsewhere
If you're creeping down seventy-sixth street
And you see my light on,
Do stop in and jump my bones

I calculate time by the intervals
In which I last got kissed
But I still feel real bored
When I've a fellow who's kissin' me

I found bugs in my carpet
I found holes in my heart
I hope when I wake up you'll still touch my ugly parts
