GOT TO CHANGE MY WAYS

34th Street partnership, they’ve got ways to keep the streets clean
But way up on 7th Avenue, man that’s quite a different scene
Yeah, that’s where I fell in with the wrong crowd, you know I never felt so green
Took me for a brother, showed me things I’d never seen



Yeah I’ve lost another day, soon I’ll have to pay
There’s nothing left to say, God knows I’ve got to change my ways
Got to change my ways



I’ve been getting through the green stuff, walls are yellow like my soul
And I’m running out of cardboard in my dazed and smoky hole
Now I’m admiring all the silverware from my thirty six year roll
I keep them in a cupboard with all the memories I stole



Yeah I’ve lost another day, soon I’ll have to pay
There’s nothing left to say, God knows I’ve got to change my ways
Got to change my ways



All the beatniks down in Trinidad, they’ve got the right idea to me
Just sat out in the sunshine, their ankles in the Caribbean Sea
They might break a sweat to fill their cups, just so long as it’s free
So I stand out on the peninsula, think I’ve got to get that life for me



Yeah I’ve lost another day, soon I’ll have to pay
There’s nothing left to say, God knows I’ve got to change my ways
Got to change my ways

Yeah I’ve lost another day, soon I’ll have to pay
There’s nothing left to say
