Lyrics

I was last seen at The Cecil dancing with an Indian girl.
Down at the corner of 4th Avenue and the end of the earth.
It was built in 1911 for transients and working men
who rode the Western rails to the East Village Station.
And may we always hope for better, may we always work and play.
And may we meet again in safer days.
And may we meet again in safer days.


These brick and sandstone draught rooms scar all south parts of every town;
where Italian shoes and the Kodiac boots trip over the same ground.
And as inside all churches a moral code will rule.
He said, ‘I’m good with faces, kid’, and followed me into the Men’s Room.
And may we always hope for better, may we always work and play.
And may we meet again in safer days.
And may we meet again in safer days.


And if we’re young in this life may we never fear a chance
and should we learn a better age may we learn vigilance.
And may we always hope for better, may we always work and play.
And may we meet again in safer days.
And may we meet again in safer days.


I was last seen at The Cecil dancing with an Indian girl.
