WOOLEY`S FLAT  ( Biber Herrmann )  

Devotees singing in the backyard
I get up and pull back the blinds
Johns reading yesterday’s papers
Brewing coffee while we unwind
Wheelchairers rolling down the sidewalk
All these refugees need a little slack
 
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
Please let me stay
Another day in Wooley’s flat
 
One of the boys said ‘Jesus help me find a woman’
But in sweet silence he remained
There’s a fine one in the pages of a glamour magazine
Lord, she’s only staring back again
They tell those funny and sad stories
Ever since the world began
 
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
Another day in Wooley’s flat
 
They’re setting the stage lights in the basement
Ev’ry night since ‘72
The pay’s just enough to cover your fare
But we troubadours love what we do
The crowd calls for one more song
That look in her eyes makes you glad
 
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
Another day in Wooley’s flat
 
There’s a newborn star out in the winter night
You know ev’ryone has to choose
I wanna sail the sea like pirate Jack Rackham
Whether I gain or whether I lose
It’s been a long time girl but now our train is coming
See it coming down the track
 
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
I wanna stay
Another day in Wooley’s flat
