Somewhere in America, there's a Street Named After My Dad

(C) 1988-- Was (Not Was)

At night, only crickets
No prowlers no sirens
No pinky ring hustlers
No angel dust Byrons

No bars on the windows
No Sabre-tooth neighbors
Just good simple folks
In a rainbow of flavors

Somewhere in America there’s a street named after my Dad
And the home we never had

I’ll work for Mr. Fowler,
Making fifty cents an hour
And I’ll save what I can
So I can get a piece of land
I’ll raise some cows and carrots,
Get ahead on my own merits
And if I fall ill take it like a man

Somewhere in America there’s a street named after my Dad
And the home we never had

No more bland TV dinners
No ten car collisions
No showbiz beginners
Making global decisions
No daycare Fellinis
No fast food assassins
No billboard bikinis
Just truth and compassion

Somewhere in America there’s a street named after my Dad
And the home we never had

Wonderful poem WD. I truly like the thought of it. Sounds so nice.

Somewhere in America there is a street named after my Dad and I grew up on that street. I grew up having other kids thinking we "had it all" since we had a street w/ our last name on it. To my dad it was an accomplishment; to the rest of us it was a bit of a burden, but seeing dad's pride nobody ever said anything.
