Testo della canzone The Day I Saw Bo Didley In Washington Square (Willie Nile), tratta dall'album Streets of New York

The Day I Saw Bo Didley In Washington Square - Willie Nile

Well the sky it was orange, the trees they were bare
There were oceans of people all going somewhere
It was just like a painting, a day at the fair
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

There were heroes and villains, paupers and thieves
There were preachers from TV who rolled up their sleeves
There was much dirty laundry in need of repair
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

There were hipsters, and pop stars, and poseurs galore
The kind of location politicians adore
And the blind man was laughing, asleep on the stair
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

Singin' lay down, lay down na-na-na
Singin' lay down with me
He sang a song for those who just don't have a prayer
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

Oh the Salvation Army was lost in the fog
As the Emperor of Ice Cream was walking his dog
And the members of Congress were chained to a chair
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

There were orphans and outcasts for whom no one cared
They were runaway children on a park bench somewhere
There were divas from uptown with nothing to wear
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

Singin' lay down, lay down na-na-na
Singin' lay down with me
He sang a song for those who just don't have a prayer
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

As the bagpipes were playing a mystical tune
The sky poured open the stars and the moon
And the arms of the infants were raised in the air
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

As the full moon ascended its heavenly stare
Two lovers embracing were caught in the glare
There are millions of people who'll say there were there
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square

Singin' lay down, lay down na-na-na
Singin' lay down with me
He sang a song for those who just
Don't have a prayer (Lay down na-na-na)
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square
Singin' lay down, lay down na-na-na
Singin' lay down with me
He sang a song for those who just
Don't have a prayer (Lay down na-na-na)
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square (na-na-na)
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square (na-na-na)
The day I saw Bo Diddley in Washington Square
