Taxi (出租車) - 70s Greatest Hits/70s Love Songs/70s Music

It was raining hard in 'Frisco

 

I needed one more fare to make my night

 

A lady up ahead waved to flag me down

 

She got in at the light

 

Oh where you going to my lady blue

 

It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain

 

She just looked out the window

 

"Sixteen Parkside Lane"

 

Something about her was familiar

 

I could swear I'd seen her face before

 

But she said "I'm sure you're mistaken"

 

And she didn't say anything more

 

It took a while but she looked in the mirror

 

And she glanced at the license for my name

 

A smile seemed to come to her slowly

 

It was a sad smile just the same

 

And she said "How are you Harry "

 

I said "How are you Sue

 

Through the too many miles

And the too little smiles

I still remember you "

 

It was somewhere in a fairy tale

 

I used to take her home in my car

 

We learned about love in the back of the Dodge

 

The lesson hadn't gone too far

 

You see she was gonna be an actress

 

And I was gonna learn to fly

 

She took off to find the footlights

 

And I took off to find the sky

 

Oh I've got something inside me

 

To drive a princess blind

 

There's a wild man wizard

He's hiding in me illuminating my mind

 

Oh I've got something inside me

 

Not what my life's about

 

Cause I've been letting my outside tide me

Over 'till my time runs out

 

Baby's so high that she's skying

 

Yes she's flying afraid to fall

 

I'll tell you why baby's crying

 

Cause she's dying aren't we all

 

There was not much more for us to talk about

 

Whatever we had once was gone

 

So I turned my cab into the driveway

 

Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns

 

And she said we must get together

 

But I knew it'd never be arranged

 

And she handed me twenty dollars

For a two fifty fare she said

 

"Harry keep the change "

 

Well another man might have been angry

 

And another man might have been hurt

 

But another man never would have let her go

 

I stashed the bill in my shirt

 

And she walked away in silence

 

It's strange how you never know

 

But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for

 

Such a long long time ago

 

You see she was gonna be an actress

 

And I was gonna learn to fly

 

She took off to find the footlights

 

And I took off for the sky

 

And here she's acting happy

 

Inside her handsome home

 

And me I'm flying in my taxi

 

Taking tips and getting stoned

 

I go flying so high when I'm stoned
