Today I walked down the street I use to wander
Yeah, shook my head and made myself a bet
There was all these things that I don't think I remember
Hey, How lucky can one man get.

I bronzed my shoes and hung from a rearview mirror
Bronzed admiration in the blind spot of regret
There was all these things that I don't think I remember
Hey, How lucky can one man get.

Today I walked down the street I use to wander
Yeah, scratched my head and lit my cigarette
Well, There was all these things that I don't think I remember
Hey, How lucky can one man get.

Today I walked down the street I use to wander
Yeah, shook my head and made myself a bet
There was all these things that I don't think I remember
Hey, How lucky can one man get.
Hey, How lucky can one man get.
Hey, How lucky can
one ..
man..
get.

    General CommentThe difference between what's in your memory, and what's actually in the places you remember.

    Is he lucky he got out of there?

    I think he sings 'shook my hand'....
    Also, 'bronzed admiration in the blind spot of regret'. If that's what he's singing, I've no idea what it means!

    Anyway, great song.

    My InterpretationJP wrote this song on his 30th birthday after breaking a fanbelt in his car. At the time I was a boy and now I'm a middle-aged man. This past weekend my wife unloaded some items from my parents house, which is being sold as they have both passed. After she went to bed I had some beers and looked at old photo albums. My childhood home seemed so much smaller than I remembered and each picture brought a flood of memories. Were my parents ever that young? If I could do it over would I do things differently? Absolutely. Would I trade any of my memories? Absolutely not.Those are the feelings exhibited in this song. Lucky to get out of Maywood? More like just plain lucky.
