lyrics

It's time to tell the timeless story
of a man who worked the trollies
and a girl from the northern forty
who kept him company

He met her in a motel lobby
watching wrestling was her hobby
when she wasn't sitting oddly
in her lingerie

She introduced herself as Lucy
and talked about her mink Jacuzzi
she owned a vintage Motoguzzi
and two Italian maids

He smelled her hair and asked her sweetly
up the stairs she followed discreetly
and they described themselves completely
while accordions played

And in the morning they went their ways
and occasionally spent their days
alone in their own private shell
but in the evening they left their cage
and so quietly made their way
to 13B Hawthorne Street

But over time his eyes grew blurry
he packed his bag, left in a hurry
but she was never one to worry
if they couldn't stay

And after many years he saw her
on a park bench with her lawyer
and in a way she looked much taller
than she did before

And in the morning they went their ways
and occasionally spent their days
alone in their own private shell
but in the evening they left their place
and so quietly made their way
to 13B, 13B, 13B Hawthorne Street
