    Lyrics

    Catch a taxi to the fountainhead
    Blinking neon penny arcade
    A young Caruso on the fire escape
    Painted face ladies on parade
    The newsboy on the corner
    Singing out headlines
    And a fiddler selling pencils
    The sign reads: Help the blind

    Comin' up the lane callin'
    Workin' while the rain's fallin'
    Ragman, your song of the street
    Keeps haunting my memory
    Music in the air
    I hear it ev'rywhere
    Rags, bones and old city songs
    Hear them, how they talk to me

    Trolley car rings out the morning
    Whistle blows at noon
    A cat fight breaks open the night
    While watch dogs bay at the moon
    A preacher on an orange crate
    With a Salvation Army Band
    And clicking along the cobbled stones
    That's the sound of the ice-cream man

    Comin' up the lane callin'
    Workin' while the rain's fallin'
    Ragman, your song of the street
    Keeps haunting my memory
    Music in the air
    I hear it ev'rywhere
    Rags, bones and old city songs
    Hear them, how they talk to me

    The organ grinder and his monkey
    Still walkin' the same old beat
    The shoe-shine boy slappin' leather
    He puts the rhythm in your feet
    Strollin' by the churchyard
    List'nin' to the Sunday choir
    With voices rising to the heavens
    Like sirens screaming to a fire

    Comin' up to the lane callin'
    Workin' while the rain's fallin'
    Ragman, your song of the street
    Keeps haunting my memory
    Music in the air
    I hear it ev'rywhere
    Rags, bones and old city songs
    Play them one more time for me
