MINK COAT AT THE BUS STOP
Rickie Lee Jones


She's out in the morning before nine

Wearing her new mink coat

And it's already 85 degrees

She looks like she's about to

Give up hope


I look at the people

Sitting at the bus stop

People need dignity and love

Love and understanding


I was a fish all night

Left out of the sea

There was nobody

That wasn't after me

I was a bird, yeah

And it started to rain

You know I wondered

If everybody could feel my pain


I look at the people

Everyone's the same

People need dignity and love

Love and understanding

Hour by hour,

The whole wide world

One soul at a time


And I say she whoa whoa

Sitting on her woo woo

She's at the whoa whoa

She's got nowhere to go

And though she whow whoa

Here everyday there's nobody

Even asks her name


I look at the people

Sitting at the bus stop

Everyone needs dignity

And love

Love and understanding

Hour by hour

The whole wide world

One soul at a time


Whoa whoa
