lyrics

Kensington

I open my door to A Day In The Life
As sung by the hippy across the street
On an abysmal acoustic guitar
With a bad bongo beat

And the Portuguese men are staring again
As they do every day from the billiard hall
Don’t they have anything better to do
With their lives?

At the One Dollar, Two Dollar, Three Dollar Store
They’ve just run out of Roach Motels
And Bruce Cockburn’s photograph is no longer on the wall
At the Pizza joint around the corner

Is it my imagination or have things settled down
Since the Bunchoffucking Goofs got kicked out of the fort
And the cops cracked down on the crack house on Kensington

I close my door to Hotel California
As played by the hippy across the street
On an abysmal acoustic guitar
With a bad bongo beat
