Miami Sidewalks

Hand in hand, we walked Miami sidewalks
The summer sun burning through our minds
When you're busted and you got no friends
Seems like the bad times never end
Never thought we'd leave Miami sidewalks behind

And the nights on Miami sidewalks
The booze and the music driftin' from the barroom doors
A nickel and a dime, the chili was cheap
Then you got to worry about a place to sleep
We tried to get five on our rings but the man said, 'Four'

Looking back on Miami sidewalks
Cryin' on each other's shoulder, havin' them heart-to-heart talks
Somebody musta been lookin' down from up above
'Cause if we had anything going at all, it musta been love

Someday honey, you and I
Gonna jump on a big jet plane and fly
To the neon land where the summer wind blows
See if our rings are still in the window
And then goodbye, Miami sidewalks

Someday honey, you and I
Gonna jump on a big jet plane and fly
To the neon land where the summer wind blows
See if our rings are still in the window
And then goodbye, Miami sidewalks
And then goodbye, Miami sidewalks
And then goodbye, Miami sidewalks
And then goodbye, Miami sidewalks
(Fade)
