lyrics

With one eye on a dream
And the other eye on the world
My love serene
Yet so unfair

She had curls that went on and on
And something I couldn't put my finger on
I played the role of a businessman
Looking for some clientele

All the angels they were singing
Sounds sweeter than a bell

But she's got to go home
There's the cab, not for sure
Down the road, down the road, down the road
And the band is playing bad
Out of tune Gypsy Jazz
On the radio, that's why she's got to go

By the sad look upon her face
She was ready for her bed
My heart's in two
But already's got it made
So baby, please won't you hold me tight
It's not as easy as black and white
We've been sitting under dynamite
For much too long

From the words so pure and tender
I thought I'd put em into song

But she's got to go home
There's the cab, not for sure
Down the road, down the road, down the road
And the band is playing bad
Out of tune Gypsy Jazz
On the radio, that's why she's got to go
