Lean Out the Window

Lean Out the Window

Lean out the window ever so carefully

Look at the bluing sky

Say hello to the world as it passes by

Lean out the window, be ever so gentle

Stop the miss or the mister hurrying on

Bless them with a smile and a friendly nod

The streets are now crowded with hastening souls

But where are they going and why?

One day there will be silence

The tale be told

Judgement day at hand

Whose hand will you hold?

Lean out the window with carefree joy

Shout to the hoi polloi, and elete

What direction do you take?

There's a Hell to shun,

A Heaven to make!


Lean Out the Window(c)2006 Quentin Clingerman
