THE SAFETY BOY BLUES


Never cross any street
Not if you see the light is red
A truck might knock you
Into the hospital bed
Children, look left. Also, look right
Just before you cross the street
Because a fast moving car
Thatís one of those cars you donít want to meet

Be careful, be careful, be careful, be careful
If you can
Up from the country
Where the road was the easy slow kind
A city street is like a beehive
Where the bees have gone out of their mind

When itís too much, too much of the traffic cominí
And youíre not sure if you should cross
Get up and go on home, whatís the difference?
See, itís just a little time lost

Thatís the Safety Boyís Blues
