CLEANING WINDOWS Van Morrison Oh, the smell of the bakery from across the street Got in my nose As we carried our ladders down the street With the wrought-iron rows I went home and listened to Jimmy Rodgers in my lunch-break Bought five Woodbines at the shop on the corner And went straight back to work Oh, Sam was up on top And I was on the bottom with the v We went for lemonade and Paris buns At the shop and broke for tea I collected from the lady And I cleaned the fanlight inside-out I was blowing saxophone on the weekend In that down joint. What's my line? I'm happy cleaning windows Take my time I'll see you when my love grows Baby don't let it slide I'm a working man in my prime Cleaning windows (number thirty-six). I heard Leadbelly and Blind Lemon On the street where I was born Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Muddy Waters sing \"I'm a Rolling Stone\" I went home and read my Christmas Humphreys' book on Zen Curiosity killed the cat Kerouac's \"Dharma Bums\" and \"On The Road\". What's my line? I'm happy cleaning windows Take my time I'll see you when my love grows Baby don't let it slide I'm a working man in my prime Cleaning windows ...
