Rickie Lee Jones

Walking down my street

Here's the room where I live

Here's the neighbor children, sometimes they bother me

Here's the window where you left

How can I forget to look,

How can I forget

A sunny afternoon

A plane goes by

Walking with my cat around

It's a sunny afternoon

Here's the window where you left

How can I forget to look

No matter where you move the light

Somebody's always got a needle in her eye

You can pet her, she won't bite

She's been lying very still all night
