Good God! Don't jump
A boy sat on the ledge
An old man who had fainted was revived
(Bizarre)
And everyone agreed it would be a miracle indeed
If the boy survived

"Save the life of my child"
Cried the desperate mother

The woman from the supermarket
Ran to call the cops
"He must be high on somethin' ", someone said
Though it never made the New York Times
In the daily news, the caption read

"Save the life of my child"
Cried the desperate mother

Hello darkness my old friend
I've come to talk to you

A patrol car passin' by
Halted to a stop
Said officer Mac Dougal in dismay
"The force can't do a decent job
'Cause the kids got no respect
For the law today" and blah blah blah

"Save the life of my child"
Cried the desperate mother
Oh, what's becomin' of the children?
People askin' each other

When darkness fell, excitement kissed the crowd
And made them wild
In an atmosphere of freaky holiday
When the spotlight hit the boy
And the crowd began to cheer
He flew away

Oh, my Grace
I got no hidin' place
Oh, my Grace
I got no hidin' place
Oh, my Grace
I got no hidin' place
Oh, my Grace
I got no hidin' place
Oh, my Grace
I got no hidin' place
