2ND VERSE:   (played same as 1st Verse)

And on the bus today, I met the Queen of L.A.
At least she said she was, and who am I to say?
She was sixty-five and full of life
She had purple-painted cheeks and glitter on her eyes
And the troll on the corner, I flipped him a quarter
And he looked at me and smiled
Well, he wasn't abused, he wasn't confused
He had nothing to gain and less to lose

3RD VERSE:   (played same as 1st Verse)

So it's three a.m., I'm out walking again
I'm just a spot on the sidewalk in a city of sin
He doesn't give a fuck, he's living under a truck
You know it could've been me, I guess it's just my luck
But I swear I hear the sidewalk talking to me
Singing to the rhythm of the feet on the beat (?)
And I swear I heard the sidewalk singing to me  
Keep on, keep on, keep on
