DON'T GET UNDER MY FEET (Robert J. Purvis)

Busy cities closing down

People sleep, I stroll around

And in my thoughts I often wonder


Through metal gates and old streetlights

Reflecting shadows in the night

Across the bridge I'm walking under


You can follow me anywhere

But don't get under my feet, no no no no no

You can follow me anywhere

But don't get under my feet, no no no no no


[scat singing (in place of solo)]


Passing policeman on his beat

His footsteps echo down the street

A million people sleep on dreaming


The giant buildings either side

For me, it's all so much alive

I really can't describe this feeling


You can follow me anywhere

But don't get under my feet, no no no no no

You can follow me anywhere (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

But don't get under my feet, no no no no no



[scat singing (in place of solo)]
