They say Taylor was a good girl, never one to be late
Complain, express ideas in her brain
Working on the night shift, passing out the tickets
You're going to have to pay her if you want to park here
Well, Mommy's little dancer's quite a little secret
Working on the streets now; never going to keep it
It's quite an imposition and now she's only wishin'
That she would have listened to the words they said
Poor Taylor

She just wanders around unaffected by the winter winds' air
She'll pretend that she's somewhere else so far and clear
About two thousand miles from here

Well, Peter Patrick pitter patters on the window
But Sunny's silhouette won't let him in
And poor old Pete's got nothin' cause he's been fallin'
But somehow Sunny knows just where he's been
He thinks that singing on Sunday gonna save his soul
Now that Saturday's gone
And sometimes he thinks that he's on his way
but I can see that his brakelights are on

He just wanders around unaffected by the winter winds' air
And he'll pretend that he's somewhere else so far and clear
About two thousand miles from here

Such a tough enchilada, filled up with nada
Given what she gotta give to get a dollar bill
Used to be a limber chicken, time's a-been a-tickin'
Now she's finger lickin' to the man
with the money in his pocket, flying in his rocket
Only stopping by on his way to a better world

If Taylor finds a better world, then Taylor's going to run away
