song: baker street
cover band: carnival in coal
original: gerry rafferty

comments: so when you actually read/listen to the lyrics to this song, it’s really not that happy. however, i don’t think it’s quite as unhappy as the cover band makes it.

first song is cover, second is original.

where can you get it?
gerry rafferty – baker street
carnival in coal – baker street

lyrics: winding your way down on baker street
light in your head and dead on your feet
well another crazy day
you’ll drink the night away
and forget about everything

this city desert makes you feel so cold
it’s got so many people but it’s got no soul
and it’s taking you so long
to find out you were wrong
when you thought it had everything

you used to think that it was so easy
you used to say that it was so easy
but you’re trying, you’re trying now
another year and then you’ll be happy
just one more year and then you’ll be happy
but you’re crying, you’re crying now

way down the street there’s a lad in his place
he opens the door, he’s got that look on his face
and he asks you where you’ve been
you tell him who you’ve seen
and you talk about anything

he’s got this dream about buying some land
he’s gonna give up the booze and the one night stands
and then he’ll settle down there’s a quiet little town
and forget about everything

but you know he’ll always keep moving
you know he’s never gonna stop moving
cuz he’s rolling, he’s the rolling stone

and when you wake up it’s a new morning
the sun is shining, it’s a new morning
you’re going, you’re going home
