"Watching the World Go By" as written by and Glen/burger Burtnik....
I wipe the dreams from my eyes, face the morning outside
And I wake up watching the world go by
I see the sun & the rain from my seat on the train
through the window
Watching the world go by
And I look on at the day unfolding
And the traffic going nowhere
Gazing out on the street and the faces I meet everyday
Watching the world go by

There are those who don't stop for the hands on the clock
They don't see the way that time can fly
Always running behind with so much on their minds
As for me, I'm watching the world go by
And through it all with the hours passing,
Everybody rushing somewhere
They're all moving so fast, trying hard to get past
As I stand watching the world go by

And in the end when the day is over
When I ask myself just where the world is going
And what's been lost what's been gained
Have our lives really changed
Then I laugh, but sometimes I want to cry
Watching the world go by
