  • I got my start on the street
    With the monkey next to me he'll
    Shake your hand for a dollar,
    If you're nice kiss your cheek
    To my left I can see
    Chinese flipping bowls on their heads from their feet
    Yo
    Strolling on the scene
    Are my arch-enemies
    Break-dancers take your crowd, your girl, your money
    Balloon man's telling me to turn down please
    And the psychic agrees
    I begin to see that

    Oh I'm home, I'm right where I belong
    And there's no where else that I'd rather be

    Because those moments on the street
    When crowd would rock with me
    I felt like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    All I really need
    Are some ears to hear me dream
    I feel like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    Standing on the street,
    Just standing on the street

    Trombone cuts deep through the crowd doing Motown moves
    With his hat tucked down
    A belly dancer passes the tip jar around
    And the men are confused, slightly aroused
    Muslims, Christians preaching, wishing
    I would shut up so the people could listen
    Supposed to cut through all this noise
    With my little voice, I begin to see that

    Oh I'm home, I'm right where I belong
    And there's no where else that I'd rather be

    Because those moments on the street
    When crowd would rock with me
    I felt like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    All I really need
    Are some ears to hear me dream
    I feel like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    Standing on the street,
    Just standing on the street

    And the day goes dark
    I pack my car
    Stare out at the ocean
    Take some time
    A quiet smile
    Let it all just soak in

    'Cause those moments on the street
    When crowd would rock with me
    I felt like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    You see all I really need for my life to feel complete
    Are some ears ears to hear me dream some ears to hear me dream

    Yes those moments on the street
    When crowd would rock with me
    I felt like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    All I really need
    Are some ears to hear me dream
    I feel like the biggest man, the biggest man in Los Angeles
    Standing on the street yeah
    Just standing on the street oh
    Just standing on the street
    Just standing on the street Writer/s: Andrew Grammer
