Singer of the Street
When I was a normal working man
I felt my life drifting like the sand
I was still young, the world lay at my feet
Aha, I said to me, be a singer of the street!
Singer, singer of the the street
When I sailed the channel cross to France
People on the street began to dance
I’d pennies in my pocket, now if you please
Aha, I said to me, it is a life of ease!
Now I am a family man
I’ve taken to the road in a motor-caravan
Five children, three cats, no dog, my lovely lady-mine
Aha, I say to me, today, I’m feeling fine!
Time ago, this story did begin
Rich, poor, I always sing
If you like to know the message, to you I have to say
Aha, there is no message, I just live from day to day!
