lyrics

You know they’re not coming
They never come
All the times you waited
While the street lights come on

I saw you last week
Walking down Jericho way
Your face a February Tuesday, and I said
‘Things must be looking up for you’

It’s never the worst thing
Being alone
It’s not such a burden
Not an ordeal to be borne
And these are the best times
Of all the times we’ve ever known

Salut clochard, salut clochard
Salut clochard, salut clochard

So you’re not maturing
With every passing year
It’s just that every day you grow a little bit more
Like you already are

And while it’s true that we’re friends
And while it’s true that we go back a long way
It’s just that slap on the back as I hug you so hard
That says I like you, but I’m not gay
And just cause I like you
I couldn’t stop you from going astray

Salut clochard, salut clochard
Salut clochard, salut clochard
Finis les lendemains…

And I want you to know
As we say goodbye
And you’re away to put some money on a horse
And I’m away to put some money on a dog
The only thing that’s surprising
Is that we think we’re surprised

Salut clochard, salut clochard
Salut clochard, salut clochard
