LyricsEdit

Slacks, coffee trend

I could have been in the US navy

Flapping grey, coffee smoke

I could have been in another nineteen-fifty

Where the hell were you?

Rough stencil, print music

Cardboard, cardboard, cardboard, cardboard, cardboard coffee

Saxophone mention barbers, N.Y.

The cigarette was burning, the flat shoes

Stool

Bongo, coffee, don't mention that black man

The leather-coat was his

Where was she?

Could have been in the US navy

Flow beating air, table-top, shoulder slung

Shore leave, no sailors here

Cardboard, cardboard, cardboard, cardboard

Liquor slacks twisting

The cigarette was burning

The flat shoes, the flat shoes, the flat shoes

Bird, bird, bird, bird

I could have been in another nineteen-fifty

Bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird

Bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird, bird

I could have been in another nineteen-fifty

Bird, bird, bird
