lyrics

Came to ramble, came to roam
I came to the city just to lose my cares from home
Under prepared, under the weather
I'm spending all my money just going back to and fro

I told my friend that it happened again when I got off the train and headed up to Franklin
I fall in love at the drop of a hat, I promised myself I wouldn't put myself through that
Got distracted by a girl in sunglasses
There goes my reason down the drain

You can only hide so long before you want to play
A pretty thing will come along and leave you helpless and astray
But the Greenpoint girls won't leave your heart alone

I told my friend that it happened again with the girl behind the bar and another that was buying a drink
And when we left there was one on the street in a big floppy hat and a scarf down to her feet

And I can only take so much before I go insane
When my luck does turn around I won't forget these days
But the Greenpoint girls won't leave your heart alone

Don't know why
Can't say when
This keeps happening over and over again
