"Sheridan Square" Lyrics

edited November 2014 in Songs
I've listened to the song "Sheridan Square" several times now, and I find myself determined to learn the song, so that I can add it to my repertoire. Unfortunately, it moves a tad too fast for me to catch all the lyrics. So, what I would like to know is, has anyone ever PRINTED the lyrics to this song? That would be very helpful.

  • Can't make any guarantees that this is one hundred percent right, but I tried to transcribe it from the demo for you even though it's been months since you posted this -

    "With a corner to catch the subway,
    And a corner to buy cigars.
    And a corner to wait for the Times to come out,
    And a corner to lean on cars.
    It was something just left to the Mardi Gras
    When my friends and their friends were there.
    But it's getting much to quiet
    Tonight on Sheridan Square.

    I'm sure that it must mean something,
    But it's really too soon to tell.
    When someone's getting famous,
    While nobody's getting well.
    And you can send my regrets to the party;
    I'd like to make it, but just don't dare.
    And why is it still so quiet
    Tonight on Sheridan Square?

    Johnny and Steve and Martin
    And a list that goes on too long.
    Dennis and Bill and Barry -
    You're the reason I wrote this song.

    Some of the boys have panic,
    And none of the boys leave town.
    They say "We're on the good ship Titanic
    We're gonna sing 'til the ship goes down.
    And if it ended before it started
    Well, no-one told us that life is fair."
    And why is it still so quiet
    Tonight on Sheridan Square?

    Somebody make a note of this,
    You people who note the trends:
    The wild ones are turning lovers,
    The lovers are turning friends.
    And if some good rises out of everything
    Then the phoenix is rising there:
    In the eyes that are scared, but softer
    Tonight on Sheridan Square

    Johnny and Steve and Martin
    And a list that goes on too long
    Dennis and Bill and Barry -
    You're the reason I wrote this song

    When you carry a load like we do,
    What's another few pounds to share?
    We can make it until the sun comes up
    And it will - over Sheridan Square."
  • @Speilbilde Muito obrigado. (That's "Thanks a lot" in Portuguese, in case you're wondering.)
  • Now that I have found the lyrics, I have another question: Was sheet music of this song ever published?
