Sweeping the Streets of Love

A song of desire and tidiness…

I waltzed and I walked and I sang today,
As street folk watched me pass.
I sat and I thought and I felt today
That life was an ocean vast.

But deep in my heart I am sure
That my thoughts for you now are impure.
So, I’ll gambol and willow and limp all day,
As my heart sweeps the streets of love.

I washed all my shorts and socks today
And thought of your eyes so blue.
I pilfered a three-dollar watch today
And the tick-tock was saying, “You.”

When I think of you now it’s in terms
Of our meeting and transmitting germs.
But I’ll gladly get croup and wheeze all day
As my heart sweeps the Streets of Love.
