Transcriber: Awcantor@aol.com

Chamois cleaning all the windows

I sang a song about Edith Piaf's soul

Yeah, an' I hear blue strains of Non Je Ne Regrette Rien

'Cross the street from Cathedral Notre Dame

Meanwhile back in San Francisco, ah!

Try hard to make this whole thing blend

Tryin' too hard

And we sat upon this jagged, story block

With Jim my friend

And it's a long way

A long way to Buffalo

A long way to Belfast, Shannon Town

And I'm hopin' that Joyce, will blow the hoist

'Cause last time they bit off much more

They could chew

Yeah, we gaze out on

An', we gaze out on

An', we gaze out on

Yeah, we gaze out on

St. Dominic's Preview

Yeah-yeah!

St. Dominic's Preview

Yeah-yeah!

(St. Dominic's Preview)

All the orange crates are stacked up

Against the Safeway supermarket, in the rain

Ev'rybody feels so determined

Not to feel anyone else's pain

No one's makin' no committments

To anybody but themselves

A-talkin' behind closed doorways

Tryin' to get outside, empty shelves

And for ev'ry, ev'ry cross-coun-country corner

'Round the corner

Ev'ry Hank Williams railroad train that cried

For the chains, the badges, and flags and emblems, oh

Ev'ry strain, on ev'ry brain, an' ev'ry eye

An' we gaze out on

An', we gaze out on

Yeah, we gaze out on

An', we gaze out on

(St. Dominic's Preview)

St. Dominic's Preview

Yeah, yeah!

(St. Dominic's Preview)

Yeeeaaah!

(St. Dominic's Preview) 'next verse'

All the restaurant tables are completely covered

(And Walter ) used to pay out for the wine

Ya got ev'rything in the world you ever wanted

Tell me, how come your face looks worse than mine?

That's the way it all should happen

When you're in the business you're in

Did you get your pen and your program?

Think it's about time

Now, for us to begin

And way on a, on a 52nd Street apartment

Socializing with the wino, few

Used to be hep and get wet with the jet set

They were flyin' too high to see my

To see my point of view

As we gaze out on

Oh yeah, we gave out on

Yeah, we gaze out on

Yeah, we gaze out on

(St. Dominic's Preview)

St. Dominic's preview

Lo-oh-ord!

(St Dominic's Preview)

Lord, no-no-no!

(St. Dominic's Preview)

Aaay-hey-hey, hey-hey!

(St. Dominic's Preview)

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I looked at the man

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I turn 'round an' looked at the band

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I looked at the man

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I turn around I looked at the band

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I looked at the man-an (huh-huh)

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I turn around an looked at the band

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I went back to the hotel

(St. Dominic's Preview)

Turn on the radio

(St. Dominic's Preview)

I got Lou Reed on the car cosmic

(Dit, did-dit, did-it, did-id-id-did-it) approx 6:18

(Do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

(Do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

Da-ba-dib-a-da-ba-da-dib-a

Da-diba-diba-diba-dat

Never-never-comin'-back

Oh-no, you're-never-comin'-back

Although-I-know-you'll-fuck-for-nothin'

Don't want ya!

(Do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

(Do, do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

Get-get-get, get-get-get, get-will-you-get

Please-will-you-get-out-my-magic-door

Oh-oh-tried-to-warn-ya

That-much-that-do-do-wop-a-wop-a

Thank-you-girl-thank-you-girl

Thank-you-girl-thank-you-for-makin

Makin-me-look-my-my-best

My-best-now-we're-gon-head-down-south

She wander, she wander

Steal a ride

(Steely Rocker's leavin' town)

<'yeah, we'll go buy some, around town'>

But that didn't work

'Cause you know the t.v. was chained to the wall?

I just couldn't stand through (throwin'?) the phone

So, tried to call my sponsor

He wasn't home

I got it!

Somethin' of that karma that came through

Was a little message, put me right in my place

An' Al Kooper was blowin' the front

The flute, the whole thing

Go like this:

<You Can't Always Get What You Want> 8:10

I went down to the Chelsea drug store

Get my freeway prescription filled

I was standin' in line with Mister Jim

The man said, 'You look pretty hip

You know you look pretty happenin'

Decided we would have a sorbet

My favorite flavor, Cherry Red

Well, put his hand in my pocket and said

'What's happenin'?

I said, 'I don't know right now

I'm egonostential

Another thing, is almost dead, ya know

Ya can't

(You can't always get what you want)

No! No! No! No!

(You can't always get what you want)

My mama told me, when I was two years old

She said, 'Ya can't always get

(What you want)

No! But if you try sometime, you just might find

(Do-do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

You get what you need

(Do-do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

(Do-do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

You get, you get, you get

You get, you get, ya get

Ya get, ya get, ya get

Ya get, ya get, ya get, ya get

Ya get what you need

(Do-do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

And where it starts

(Do-do-do, do-do, do-do-do-do)

And what I get

Ya gotta put in

Should be a little bit more than you take out

St. Dominic's Preview

Ooooh-oooh-oooh, yeah!

Ooh, look at the band! Ay!

(St. Dominic's Preview)

St. Dominic's Preview

A-pre-pre-pre-pre-pre-view

Now-how-how-how, now, wow

Feelin' alright, now

Whoa-oh-oh, right now, right now

Wow, oh yeah
