    Lyrics

    Leaning out the window
    Callin' down to the street
    "I'll find you on the corner
    You know - where we always meet
    The Doctor, he just called me on the phone
    Who's that in the alley?
    Dog snoopin' for a bone

    I'm goin' out, Mama
    I'll be a big man someday, you'll see
    I have a vision
    I've got a poet's soul inside of me"
    "Watch out, my baby
    You're my darling one"
    "Don't worry about me, Mama
    I'm the seventh son of a seventh son"

    You know, I see it
    But it's only in my dreams
    All the houses brought to order
    When Parliament convenes

    "I'm just a young boy
    In my natural prime
    Watch me walkin'
    Down the rickety steps of time
    I'm going to meet my friend
    I sing a song to tell the truth
    This is the second chapter
    From the pages of my youth"

    Then a car pulled up
    And a window rolled down
    A glint of steel
    "Hit the ground! Hit the ground!"
    Pop pop, pop pop pop
    And then all was still
    The blood ran down the street
    Another casket filled

    I saw that mother crying
    She rocked him where he lay
    The pavement was his cradle
    As his life slipped away
    "Doctor! Doctor!
    Can you bring my sweet boy back?
    Doctor! Doctor!
    He was the victim of a sneak attack"

    And all the lords and ladies
    In respect they stepped aside
    When they heard the sirens scream
    And the white doors open wide
    I heard that mother crying
    "Who would come to do him harm?"
    She called across the ages
    "Lay down your arms!"
