She once stole a paperback
She found a gay lord's drugs
She was too ashamed to buy it
what would the clerk think of her
so she put it in her overcoat
and had a bite to eat
with the whole book in her pocket she couldn't wait to read
she's goin' down she's goin' down town to Perry Street
she's goin' down she's goin' way down to Perry Street

Small room in a tiny town
she made sure they were asleep
she read about the wicked girls who live on Perry Street
which was down in Greenwich Village
it was 1963
it was more than she imagined it could ever be
she's goin' down she's goin' down town to Perry Street
she's goin' down she's goin' way down to Perry Street

Page 45 she has her first kiss
Page 68 she's almost there
she's almost there

She pulled into the station
With her suitcase in both hands
Her heart pounding louder than the pomington grass band
And the stars are from the ceiling
Shine down as in a dream
She hails her first cab ever she goes down to Perry Street
she's goin' down she's goin' down town to Perry Street
she's goin' down she's goin' way down, yeah
she's goin' down she's goin' way down to Perry Street
