Strange Dreams

Hey pretty baby on the south bound train


Step close to the fire let me feel that flame


Don’t speak no lies through that crystal ball


Show me the world and Ill take it all


Morning sun gives toast to the moon


As we float by on a red balloon


A voodoo woman said I’d go far


Slap me in the face and kicked me out of her car

 

Chorus:


You wanna be a star you got it


Oh don’t you know you got it


That’s what she said


But even those stars they shine so brightly just to fall


So I wrap myself up in another song


I’m gonna write it all down and sing it all wrong

Walkinstick walkinstick walkinstick man


Walk on by just as far as you can


It’s so hard to be poor these days


I watch it all collapse through a midnight haze


Hey copper man with your slick black hat


Throw me to the curb show me where it’s at


Don’t cut your eyes just throw the cuffs on me


But you’re the only one here that wants to be like me

 

Chorus:


You wanna be a star you got it


Oh but you’ll never have


I keep giving the all I got till there’s nothing left


I spent my time on everybody else so I think it’s about time 
I started helping myself

 

Three black birds on a power line


Lightning strikes baby just in time


One went to heaven and one went to hell


And the other is with me in the county jail


Used to know a man speak words through rhyme


Even do a dance for a shiny dime


It’s been so long I wonder where he went


The last thing she said he was the president


Blackberry deluxe the only one that I trust


She’s the one that takes it all on me


Throw me through this place darling show me some space


Just the one to take it all on me


Strange dreams, strange dreams
