She told you about it through a broken bleeding windpipe
It shook your bones and made your life feel skintight

Well Sidewalk Annie, now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

The howlin' winds could never care what she liked
Rhythm and blues or 'A Stranger In The Night'
It tore up the trailer with the sounds of a howlin' wolf
The cellar was stone, even the garden was bulletproof

Well Sidewalk Annie, now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

Little girl in your white ice skates
We've seen your face walkin' around the old school gates
With a hand on your hip and the other one on your head
You realized it wasn't gone but lost instead

Sidewalk Annie, now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone

Invested a nickel into the banks of a wishing well
And blew out the candles and hoped for somethin'
That she could, she could sell

Sidewalk Annie, now your coattails have come undone
Your whisper's a scream now since you don't speak to anyone
