"Meet Me On The Corner" as written by and Rod Clements....
Hey mister dream seller
Where have you been.
Tell me have you dreams I can see?
I came along, just to bring you this song,
Can you spare one dream for me?

You wont have met me,
And you'll soon forget.
So don't mind me tugging at your sleeve.
I'm asking you,
If I can fix a rendezvous,
For your dreams are all I believe.

Meet me on the corner,
When the lights are coming on,
And I'll be there.
I promise I'll be there.
Down the empty streets,
We'll disappear into the dawn,
If you have dreams enough to share.

Lay down your bundles,
Of rags and reminders,
And spread your wears on the ground.
Well I've got time,
If you're dealing mine,
I'm just hanging around.


Hey mister dream seller,
Where have you been.
Tell me have you dreams I can see?
I came along, just to bring you this song,
Can you spare one dream for me?

    General CommentLindisfarne at their very, very best - whimsical, nostalgic and quirky. Hunt out the video on YouTube of this set over a series of photos of the changing face of Newcastle, and especially Byker: a true work of love. Christmas just isn't Christmas without the City Hall concerts. God bless you, lads, and rest in peace, Alan Hull. Love you and miss you all.

    General CommentCertainly this song has parallels to Bob Dylan and Mr Tambourine Man. The first two words are identical, and the slang words about drugs are frequent.

    But more than that, the song is about the writers muse. It is about the ability to write songs, to connect with other people, to leave behind something of worth.

    The different live versions of this that one can find on youtube are all fun, especially the ones done 40 years after the song was written. It shows that a good song with clever lyrics and a bouncy beat can become timeless.

    Melanie Safka does a good version of this song too. And she also covered Mr Tambourine Man. At Woodstock no less. So she heard the parallels too.

    It is a wonderful gold nugget of a song. Well done Lindisfarne.
