    "Mr. Zero [Keith Relf Singles]" Lyrics

    The Yardbirds

    Diamonds of silvery rain in the fountains
    And ten-cent red roses from department store counters
    Watching the moonlight reflect off the river
    Beside where the trains cross the bridge and slow down
    Trains with white letters on black iron sides
    And white rushing water that all rolls away
    And Little Miss Someone does not want to stay
    Everyone's moving, with places to go
    And Mr Zero - he sadly stands still
    As the water goes one way, the train goes another
    Mr Zero stands still, and Miss Someone don't bother

    Yesterday's kiss will be cold by tomorrow
    As campfires of midnight dissolve in the darkness
    The room is deserted, the blinds have been drawn
    Little Miss Someone has packed up and gone
    Fast moving cars disappear down the highway
    With signs that say: "hitch-hikers: do not disturb"
    Mr Zero looks quietly up from the curb
    Morning has faded, and shadows have grown
    And Little Miss Someone is on her way home
    Mr Zero stands watching - her plane flies above
    And with frost-bitten hands waves goodbye to his love

    Walks through the park on a bright summer Sunday
    And tapestry kittens that hung on the wall
    They all die in the air like a soft minor chord
    A vacancy sign, and a bulletin board
    Mr Zero is wrapping his jacket around him
    Speaking kind words that should have been said long ago
    But Little Miss Someone does not want to know
    The night is deserted, there's dust on the shelf
    Mr Zero sits lonely and talks to himself
    It's too late to change, the fine line has been crossed
    The charades are all done, Mr Zero has lost
