Talkin' Midtown Women Jackie Greene Song Lyrics

Talkin' Midtown Women Lyrics
by Jackie Greene

Well monday morning had me down
by tuesday evening iíd come around
Friday found me singing on the stage
well i donít mind working late
it keeps the beans on my plate
if it werenít for singing, I might be in the cage

now i got me a basement with a view
and i can sleep till 1/2 past two
some folks call me lazy some call me brave
but it donít matter anyway
we do our own things day to day
i just ainít no one elseís slave

and all the while the world turns
with petty talk and lame concerns
and arguments over what you should believe
and all the while the world burns
itís clear as day, but nobody learns
cause no one wants a cure for this disease

now i see women everywhere
on the street and on the stair
sometimes itís so hard to keep my cool
platinum blondes whoíve gone brunette
and some who ainít decided yet
Lord sometimes they make me feel just like a fool!

i know girls with strange tattoos
and i know girls who like their booze
and i know girls who donít do nothing but cry
i know girls with plastic faces
their pictureís on their pillowcases
i know girls who live to love and lie

and everytime i turn around
another grave is in the ground
theyíre selling all kinds of crap on my TV
and everytime I turn around
someone says they think theíve found
the answer to some old forgotten mystery

now outside the apartment gates
thereís vanity on license plates
and a dozen differnt kinds of coffee shops
i go walking down that avenue
same as them, same as you
difference is my feet donít ever stop!

now i know married girls who cheat
they say their lives are incomplete
and i know girls who say theyíve been betrayed
i know some girls who speak of fate
and they donít ever hesitate
they say: ďlife is made of moments, being madeĒ

but come midnight itís all the same
it melts into a picture frame
and suddenly everythigns so clear
the night is cool, the moon is tame
and thereís nothing but some crazy dame
itís always these damn women that keep me here

wintertimes, my favorite time
i get to see old friends of mine
everybodyís running from the cold
but i know someday itíll all be gone
when youth decides to pass me on
and time decides to turn my body old

but iíll always love that cheap perfume
messiní with my afternoons
and all those pretty women passing by
we all sing the same old tune
like the locals in the loud saloon
just doing what were doing till we die
