The Wet Side of the Road
Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street
Got in my nose
As we carried our ladders down the street
With the wrought-iron rows
I went home and listened to Jimmy Rodgers in my lunch-break
Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner
And went straight back to work
Van Morrison, Cleaning Windows
No smell from this bakery any more. And I bought a cup of Pea & Ham soup instead of five Woodbines at lunchtime. But, like Van the Man, I went straight back to work.
That kind of a day, really.
