Lindy

Album: Life on a Rock (2012)
  • Lindy strolls around

    Down main streets
    Down side streets
    Makin' his way through town he picks up pennies
    Saves 'em for a rainy day
    With callous feet he makes his way to see the sun sink in the bay

    Lindy strolls around and around and around
    Around and around and around
    He plays piano at the church when nobody's watchin'
    Takes cigarettes from strangers and sometimes you see Him talkin'
    To himself, laughin' to himself
    Lindy strolls around and around and around

    Lindy's seen it all
    Storms and hurricanes
    Some say he's insane
    No one knows his last name
    But I believe
    He's the salt of the Earth
    Just look past his dirty shirt and you will see just what he's worth

    Lindy strolls around and around and around
    Around and around and around
    He plays piano at the church when nobody's watchin'
    Takes cigarettes from strangers and sometimes you see
    Him talkin' to himself, laughin' to himself
    Lindy strolls around and around and around
    Around and around and around

    Ooh

    He plays piano at the church when nobody's watchin'
    Takes cigarettes from strangers and sometimes you see
    Him talkin' to himself, laughin' to himself
    Lindy strolls around and around and around
    Around and around and around

    Lindy strolls around and around and around
