Run to the newsstand, boy, for a paper
Here's the change you will owe
Pass all the smoking girls and their babies
Where they nurse in the road

And read me, read what has taken place
And we might see sporting races fruitful today

Run to the newsstand, boy, I'm too tired
But I'll show you the way
Pass every chain-linked dog, every fire
And that music they make

And read me, read what building's blowing down
And we might see famous faces riding through town

Run to the newsstand, boy, I heard maybe
Of a chance for some rain
Pass every preaching man talking crazy
By the bus stop again

And we may read the scandals of the fair
And we might see foreign photos, love changing hands somewhere

    General Commentthis song used to remind me of a fever, or a weird dream, or of being dead. seeing things you used to see all the time, or seeing things that seemed too surreal, just a head full of freedom and stress. maybe dreaming of a far away place, things that made you feel warm and sort of claustrophobic.
