Taking a walk on Albany Street
I started to wonder why
if my job’s got me feeling lifeless
why am I afraid to die?
There is no reason why.
I can see it now.
How the birds and bees
and the flowers and trees
don’t give a damn about no pension
or no tax
‘Cause their IRA
is the brand new day
Shouldn’t have to set aside time
Wouldn’t it be sweet
for you and me?
Waking up early in the morning
after a night in town
The sun is shining through my blinds
Tell the boss I won’t be around
There is no reason why
I can’t see it now.
Here we are at it again
There’s nothing left here to defend
Everyone’s a little enemy and a little friend
Everyone’s got rules they’re willing to bend
Come on, come on get out of your head
