Lyrics

The sidewalk spiel, it's no big deal
The traffic lights are blinking just the same
The church bell tolls for hearts and souls
And every moth is flapping towards a flame

Don't look down, Pollyanna
Don't look down at all
Shreveport, Louisiana
Is just as high as Niagara Falls
You feel as if you're over a barrel
You think you might be close to the edge
You're hoping there'll be somebody there who
Will get you back intact off the ledge

Your west side home, they foreclosed on
Is someone else's dream come true today
At near half price, it must feel nice
To wake up with a mortgage one can pay

Don't look down Pollyanna
Don't look down at all
Shreveport, Louisiana
Is just as high as Niagara Falls
You feel as if you're over a barrel
You think you might go straight down the drain
You're hoping there'll be somebody there who
Will zap you back to Hackberry Lane

"The World And How To Work It"
Is a book you should've read
There should've been a copy
On the night stand by your bed
"Life And How To Live It"
Is another good choice as well
The new large print edition and a fairly clean hotel

A sweet soul blast from days gone past
Is bouncing off the Greyhound station wall
A safe past tense that makes good sense
And now is somewhat painful to recall

Don't look down, Pollyanna
Don't look down at all
Shreveport, Louisiana
Is just as high as Niagara Falls
You feel as if you're over a barrel
You think you might be close to the end
You're hoping there'll be somebody there who
Will get you back on track once again
