Lyrics

I walked round the block this morning
To take in a pocket of blue
With yesterday’s black cartoon tattoo
Smudged still on my hand
The band last night they played rock n roll
Three young boys suited in grey
The bar man served us Hendricks and red
And a Norwegian guy said hi but I ran away
As bridges were yet to be crossed

I’m nobody’s girl and I’m nobody’s fool no more
I’m trying not make the same old mistakes like before
As I build life anew me without you
On Brooklyn’s East River shore

I wondered how your mother was
And if she was on the mend
She was good to me like I wanted to be
When you’d bury your head in the sand
The Eagle spoke of times good and bad
As the Avenue shuttle scooted by
The mailman skipped up 8,9,10 steps
For every door he’d letters for but he’d none for me
As I was so new in town

I’m nobody’s girl and I’m nobody’s fool no more
I’m trying not make the same old mistakes like before
As I build life anew me without you
On Brooklyn’s East River shore
As I build life anew me without you
On Brooklyn’s East River shore
