careful of the gutter

be careful of the gutter lady

you never know who’s there

be careful of the gutter lady

do not pause do not stare

this could be you one day 

so lady please beware

do not linger do not pause

oh be careful lady there

looking there so long lady

may take you far too near

so closely staring lady

brings you far away from here

from here to there lady

it really is not far

with just a tiny step lady

in the gutter there you are

down there looking back

is such a long way lady

stars gleam against the black

it could still be you lady

lady still be you
