A modest triple decker in a section that was working class
Not a lot of company but we would go there after mass
Lace curtains in the windows that had been there since the last Great War
They were on the first one and the Mulligans were on the second floor

Sunday drivin' in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on a TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave

There was nothing in the pantry and it cant be in the parlor there
It's really nothin fancy, honey, here's a half a dollar, dear
A John F. Kennedy could let you and your brother both can share
Just not the type of people that would ever put on airs

Sunday drivin' in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on a TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave

And outside of the playground theres a pick-up game of hoops
Picked up the Sunday Journal at the Greeks
We would watch the Filipinos with the Yoyo's on the stoop
But no not on your life six days a week

No one was ever listening to anybody else
We only ever knew what we were told
Only on Wisdom Avenue on Sunday afternoons
Wisdom Ave's where everything grew old

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Had to be there just to see first hand
Whatever had happened to my old man

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave
