Sheridan Square – 海宝直人

With a corner to catch the subway
And a corner to buy cigars
And a corner to wait for the “Times”to come out
And a corner to lean on cars

It was something just left to the Mardi Gras
When my friends and their friends were there
But it’s getting much too quiet
Tonight on Sheridan Square

I’m sure that it must mean something
But it’s really too soon to tell
When somebody’s getting famous
While nobody’s getting well
And you can send my regrets to the party
I’d like to make it, but just don’t dare
And why is it still so quiet
Tonight on Sheridan Square?

Johnny and Steve and Martin
And a list that goes on too long
Dennis and Bill and Barry
You’re the reason I wrote this song

Some of the boys have panic
But none of the boys leave town
They say “We’re on the good ship Titanic
We’re gonna sing ‘til the boat goes down.”
And if it ended before it started
Well, no one told us that life is fair
And why is it still so quiet
Tonight on Sheridan Square?

Somebody make a note of this
You people who note the trends
The wild ones are turning lovers
The lovers are turning friends

And if some good rises out of everything
Then the phoenix is rising there
In the eyes that are scared, but softer
Tonight on Sheridan Square

Johnny and Steve and Martin
And a list that goes on too long
Dennis and Bill and Barry
You’re the reason I wrote this song

When you carry a load like we do
What’s another few pounds to share?
We can make it until the sun comes up
And it will
Over Sheridan Square.
