The sound of the street cars rattles my heart
And keeps me up all the time
They clatter and they bang and they rumble like rain
All through the night

And they sound as lonely, lonely as anything
Lonely as anything at all
It's just the sound of steel scraping on steel
That reminds me that you're gone

Gone to a town where everyone hangs around
On hardwood floors
And they all smoke American cigarettes
And wish they were William Burroughs

And do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?
Do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?

And I looked up at the moon and I thought of you
And I thought of me
And I wished you were near me to drink with me
To get drunk as can be

Cos I remember quite clearly, so plainly
You said you'd never go far from me
You said you wouldn't leave me, so where does that put me
Now that you're gone?

And do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?
Do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?
And do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?
Do you miss me
Do you miss me at all
When you hear the street cars go by?
When you hear the street cars go by?
