The Wish (Album Version) - Bruce Springsteen (布魯斯·斯普林斯汀)

Dirty old street all slushed up

In the rain and snow

 

Little boy and his ma shivering

Outside a rundown music store window

 

That night on top of a Christmas

Tree shines one beautiful star

 

And lying underneath a brand-new

Japanese guitar

 

I remember in the morning ma

Hearing your alarm clock ring

 

I'd lie in bed and listen to you

Gettin' ready for work

 

The sound of your makeup case

 

On the sink

 

And the ladies at the office

All lipstick perfume and rustlin' skirts

 

And how proud and happy you

Always looked walking home from work

 

If pa's eyes were windows

Into a world so deadly and true

 

You couldn't stop me from

Looking but you kept me from

Crawlin' through

 

And if it's a funny old world

 

Mama where a little boy's wishes come true

 

Well I got a few in my pocket

 

And a special one just for you

 

It ain't no phone call on Sunday

 

Flowers or a mother's day card

 

It ain't no house on a hill with

A garden and a nice little yard

 

I got my hot rod down on Bond Street

I'm older but you'll know me in a glance

 

We'll find us a little rock 'n roll bar

 

And baby we'll go out and dance

 

Well it was me in my Beatle boots

You in pink curlers and matador pants

 

Pullin' me up of the couch

To do the twist for my uncles and aunts

 

Well I found a girl of my own now

Ma I popped the question on your birthday

 

She stood waiting on the front porch while

You were telling me to get out there

And say what it was that I had to say

 

Last night we all sat around laughing

 

At the things that guitar brought us

 

And I layed awake thinking 'bout the

Other things it's brought us

 

Well tonight I'm takin's requests

Here in the kitchen

This one's for you ma let me

Come right out and say it

 

It's overdue but baby if you're

Looking for a sad song

 

Well I ain't gonna play it
