It's been too many mornings since the mornings in the sun
The day is neverending 'til the darkness begun
Hearing from the .. house upon 43
Sun is breaking dust along the rusty Rue de Lis

Now he's down the Rue de Lis
He's down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

We heard there was a soldier from a muskateer time
Kept on a secret's guarded wine
Never spend his money, not a nickel or a frame
Wouldn't dress their sister any more than the back

Now he's down the Rue de Lis
He's down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

After the procession no one dared to make a sound
Counted all his money and every note they found
Came written an inscription only his hand would have seen
I live my life like my brothers at sea

Down the Rue de Lis
They're down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

Walk down the Rue die Lis
Down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

    General CommentI think the a couple lines are a little off. I'm almost postive he's saying "Never spent his money, not a nickel or a frank", and "Wouldn't trust his sister any more than the bank". Oh yeah, and I think he's saying "Hearing from the lightman's house up on 43".
