Return to Lyrics list

I have not seen you in a long time
I hope the sun shines in your yard
How's your old body hope your mind's fine
It don't have to be so hard
I got money for my baby
I didn't have to steal no cars
Just play piano in Altoona
For the children of the stars

We have not written in a long time
Has your head run out of ink
I tune pianos for a sideline
Has your pen run out of think
Here's a picture of my baby
She's the big girl on the right
I play piano in Altoona
For the children of the night

You're wondering what I'm doing daytimes
Honey you don't want to ask
There are some things you shouldn't say times
Sorry bout the broken glass
I got money for my baby
She's a high class girl you see
I play piano in Altoona
Or maybe it's been playing me

I have not seen you in a long time
I hope the sun shines in your yard
How's your old body hope your mind's fine
Don't forget to send a card
Just address it to my baby
She loves to see her name wrote down
I play piano in Altoona
All my bridges burning down
