lyrics

From the docks to the blocks
to behind the pines, on the rocks
or behind locks, like in the box,
the basket is a case
of what takes the cake: stocks.
On the list, it is tops
and protected by the cops.
That’s why the train goes a bit North and just stops,
keeping out kids, moms and pops.
It’s a strange city, it’s pretty
but smells pretty bad,
it’s full of paradoxes
but outside the boxes,
a lot of love and laughter,
which some find obnoxious
they box us in,
but we’ll growl and punch
just like boxers,
two species, both tenacious
unwilling to live in places
where the sun don’t shine.

I know sometimes
the sun won’t shine
but I don’t mind
cause when it does, it’s all mine.
And I Feel Fine.

Like a little one, a little sun,
nice day, ok, let’s go play,
take a dive, strive to see
what it’s like to be alive
how it feels, how real it is
when we really live
outside in the streets,


a nice way to take away
all of the gray,
a little bit of blue
otherwise it’s no fun,
but a sun so yellow, it mellows,
it bellows out like a cello,
a vibration of fellowship.

I know sometimes
the sun won’t shine
but I don’t mind
cause when it does, it’s all mine.
And I Feel Fine.

Why not sail away
on a ship of happiness?
Or endless bliss?
Never feeling hapless,
love kiss the lips
and we’re feeling fantastic,
finally a little bit more enthusiastic
‘bout where we go from here,
those we keep near
and we steer ourselves
clear of the coast,
the cliffs, the coves,
the mist can mix us up,
so we stay in the sun
cause when we’re broke,
then who gonna fix us up?

I know sometimes
the sun won’t shine
but I don’t mind
cause when it does, it’s all mine.
And I Feel Fine.
