lyrics

IT’S A SHAME MITCHAM STATION WASN’T NAMED AFTER ROBERT

IF ONLY THEY COULD CHANGE ONE LITTLE VOWEL

IT’S WHO I THINK OF WHEN THE TRAIN STOPS OUT THIS WAY

THERE’S NOTHING TOO HOLLYWOOD OUT HERE ANY WAY

WHAT USED TO BE ROSE GARDENS, PERFUMES AND POTIONS AND ORANGE GROVES

NOW THERE’S TALL GREY WALLS, SECURITY LIGHTS

COMMUTER COMMUTE AND FIGHT THE FIGHT

FRIENDS ARE SHOOTIN’ THE BREEZE AND SCROLLING THEIR PHONES

AND DREAMING THEIR DREAMS

THERE’S TAGS ON THE FENCES BY A VACANT PARK

JACARANDAS LINE THE STREET BY THE OLD MILK BAR

IF ONLY THEY COULD CHANGE ONE LITTLE VOWEL

LADIES WITH BOUFFANTS AND BEEHIVES IN FLORAL DRESSES OR PLEATED SKIRTS

WORN IN THE DAY

SOME MIGHT’VE DREAMT ABOUT HIM ALONG THE WAY TO THEIR OFFICE JOBS

ROMANTIC NOTIONS, CONSEQUENCES, THE AFTERMATH

WILLA HARPER, NACY BOWDEN, MAX CADY WOULD’VE HAD A LAUGH

THERE’S SOME UNSAVOURY CHARACTERS OUT HERE ON THIS LINE

MISCHIEF, FISTFIGHTS AND PETTY CRIME

IF ONLY THEY COULD CHANGE ONE LITTLE VOWEL

THERE’S A YOUNG GIRL LEANING UP AGAINST A MAN

HE’S GOT A TATTOO DOWN HIS ARM

THEY’RE TALKING WHO OWES WHO, FOR WHAT AND FOR WHEN

AND LOST FRIENDS INSIDE

THEY’RE PLANNING ON THAT BIG MOVE REAL SOON, FAR AWAY FROM THE LINE

NO MORE HOPELESS EXCUSES, NO MORE FOOLISH MISTAKES,

NO MORE LIEING AND CRYING

NOW SHE’S SMILING AT THE RING ON HER FINGER, GAZING UP INTO HIS EYES

HE’S PROMISING TO LASSO THE MOON, AS SHE HOLDS HIM TIGHT

WELL THAT SMILE IT COULD CRUSH OR SAVE YOU OR KEEP YOUR HOPES ALIVE

A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS IT’S GONNA HAPPEN THIS TIME

A POCKETFUL OF DREAMS, NO MORE LIEING AND CRYING

IF ONLY THEY COULD CHANGE ONE LITTLE VOWEL

IT’S WHO I THINK OF WHEN THE TRAIN STOPS OUT THIS WAY

THERE’S NOTHING TOO HOLLYWOOD OUT HERE ANY WAY

IT’S A SHAME MITCHAM STATION WASN’T NAMED AFTER ROBERT
