"Dancer" as written by David Alexander Courtney and Leo Sayer....
Jeanette was a dancer
I suppose I knew her well
Her feet danced miracles
I was lost within her spell

Jeanette knew a singer
Was the leader of some band
Looked just like a boy
And stood just like a man

And it rains all down the avenue
Yes it rains all down the avenue

Just for you
Just for you
Just for you boy
Just for you

The kids in the back street cry
You hear their voices in your brain
The world is full of hungry souls
Behind the window panes

Little Jenny on the high wire
Slow motion as she fell
Sometimes I think the wire is me
The tragedy as well

And it rains all down the avenue
Oh yes it rains all down the avenue
It rains all down the avenue

Just for you
Just for you
Just for you boy
Just for you
Just for you boy
Just for you

I work on the west side
Jeanette I pulled your strings
I stood upon the pavement
I never owned a thing
And still I am the singer
I know my song so well

The rain falls through my eyes
And lands below the shell
And it rains all down the avenue
Yes it rains all down the avenue
Oh yes it rains all down the avenue

Just for you boy
Just for you
Just for you boy
Just for you
