Lyrics

Another week is gone
And you soldier on
In this grind up town
Man it gets you down

There's this Joni tune
'Bout this horn playing man
Playin on the street
And he sounds so sweet

You've been searching for that sound
Since you came
You never saw that dude
Never heard him play

And you're so over it
You might be miles away
But for this one cafe
Where the local cats play

Doin' it right down on Jones Street
Playin' real good for free
When the music's right down on Jones Street
There is nowhere you'd rather be

Another year is gone
And you're staying on
In this strange hotel
That you know so well

There's a mystery clock
On the penthouse floor
But you can't read its hands
From the basement door

Though you've been trying to tell that time
Since you came
You never heard it tick
Never held its chain

You just might be saying
It's been a crying shame
But for this one cafe
Where the local cats play

Doin' it right down on Jones Street
Playin' real good for free
When the music's right down on Jones Street
There is nowhere you'd rather be
