Down the street, around the corner
Over the bridge, that dirty water
College campus, mighty minds and a reactor right behind
Passed the candy factory, Salvation Army
Fire station through the square
I hate that place up the stairs

Next the doors, they never work I never let that bother me
And I hope some worker's not disgruntled
I hope there's something there for me
An old man reads the paper loudly everyday now for a year
Stamp machines and wanted posters here again, again I'm here

Now it's 737 almost everyday!
737 well I want you to say!
737 and everyday!
737 almost everyday!

Nice to know that someone hears us
It's good to know somebody's there
Taking the time to say hello
Taking the time to show you care
Write again and thanks again from the bottom of my heart
See you soon and till then 737 is a real big part

I've been down the last time, stretchin the finish line
Shoe glue what can I do?
A man's not well dressed if his shoes are a mess
Rock and Roll I've got a hole right in my sole
Let's rock! It's fucking my walk and soaking my sock
Who knew? It's not stopping my step or stepping my stop
We've got it up and we won't let it drop
Beer here, don't wanna see clear
I see no point in wrecking the joint
We're here to quench our thirst a bit
But we won't get the worst of it
Turn it up more than a notch
Like a punch to the face or a kick to the crotch
All night never ender benefiting from a bender
I f nothing's worrying you, that's the key
Cause nothing's worrying me
And nothing's worrying me...

    General Commenti loved this song for as long as i can remeber. I never understood what it means for a while. The first half is describing a daily journey to the Bosstones' 737 PO Box (no longer in existence). The rest changes gears and probably is about some inside joke. Now if i can only get my hands on a 737 hockey jersey...

    General CommentI like description of his trip, you can pretty much follow him by the map...

    "Over the bridge, that dirty water"...this is prob the Harvard Bridge aka Mass Ave. The trip probably starts in Boston (the song Toxic Toast mentions some of the MMBT lived on Queensbury in the fens).

    "College Campus, mighty minds"...prob. refers to MIT
    "A reactor right behind"...theres a nuclear reactor lab at MIT on Albany St.

    "Past the candy factory"...I think this might be Necco. According to their wiki they had a historic bldg in Cambridge that was taken over by Novartis, which is omnipresent in Central Sq.

    "Salvation Army, Fire station"...Both are around Mass ave and Main

    "Through the Square, i hate that place"...Probably referring to Central Sq, not Harvard. Central is kinda dirty, lotsa bums b/c of the nearby methadone clinics.

    "Up the stairs!"...there's a post office right past central if you're going north. Corner of Inman and Mass ave.
