Ferryboat to Easy Street

Somewhere along the ferry
Or out there
On the streets
You know it'll be all right.

Hide yourself in fright
Stay out all night
We will make you less tight
Strange possible delight
With anyone in sight.

Keep you cool
You need to stay in school
Make everyone out there proud
Be real proud talk so loud
And together we'll be allowed.

Don't you know
I can't take it
The way you strap it out
Nobody here in pain
Feeling like I have
Seen you here.

Don't worry I'll pull out
You know it'll be all right
Keep it stiff
Act real bright
You're so fine
Just like a sign.

Kind of on the height
Of the experience
Throwing in minds
All twisted with followers.

The real early days, 41 years go, just testing out my friend Greg Carter's electric typewriter.

That was Greg... I actually went to classes with his younger brother Anthony Carter, never knew what went with either one in these later years.
