"All's Quiet On The Eastern Front" as written by and Douglas Colvin....
Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk

See me silently quietly creep
I am too amped to sleep
Lamp rays shining down
Street lamps make the buzzing sound
Subway creaking down below
Garbage piled up and ready to go

Lock the windows the gates on
Taxi in the distance coming along
Stalking the streets till the break of day
New York beauty take my breath away
Near some cats but dogs don't bark
Cool cats strolling after dark

Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk

Shaky lock and kicky door
Smokey air that I adore
Down in the alley is where I hunt
All is quiet on the eastern front

Stalking the street till the break of day
New York beauty take my breath away

Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk
Watch the watch the way I walk
Can't you think my movements talk
Can't you think my movements talk
Can't you think my movements talk

    General Commentthe title of this song is supposed to remind you of "all quite on the western front" but its not anything about the book. its about new york.

    General CommentYeah it's a reference to "All Quiet on the Western Front". We just read it in World History like a week ago. But this song is about New York. The Eastern front is the east U.S.A. Not about the fighting in Russia.
