When you thought I was a stranger, when you looked upon me
When I came back
But to take you from disaster, I cannot master
The four winds in your shack

In the roamin', in the gloamin', you have brought
And set before me
And I think that it's an omen, I'm just not
What so many people see

And you shined your glory all around
Do not disguise what you did
I asked you for half a pound and you said
"Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid
Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid"

And the child held a ball in the garden
With the old queen
When ya kissed the lips and heart, another stranger
You know what I mean

And you walked on the streets so lonely
In your own childish way
And you thought that you would only, ha
Do it for today

And you shined your glory all around
Do not disguise what we did
I asked you for half a pound and you said
"Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid
Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid"

And just stood outside the club and the rain came down
On his head and he got all soakin' wet
He said, "Go for yourself", I said, "I know"
Show Joe, I ain't conquered yet

And I walk away from the backstreet in the rain and I saw
How many times have I died
Then we turned on outside of the bus shelter
And I jumped on and said goodbye

And I shined my glory all around
Did not disguise what I did
Tried to keep it underground but they said
"Go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning, kid
You gotta, go see Joe Harper, Saturday morning"
