Lyrics

It's been too many mornings since the mornings in the sun
The day is neverending 'til the darkness begun
Hearing from the lightman's house upon 43
Sun is breaking dust along the rusty Rue de Lis

Now he's down the Rue de Lis
He's down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

We heard he was a soldier from a muskateer time
Kept all his secrets guarded in wine
Never spend his money, not a nickel or a franc
Wouldn't trust his sister any more than the bank

Now he's down the Rue de Lis
He's down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

After the procession no one dared to make a sound
Counted all his money and every note they found
Came written an inscription only his hand would have seen
I live my life like my brothers at sea

Down the Rue de Lis
They're down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night

Walk down the Rue die Lis
Down the Rue de Lis
We walked him down the Rue de Lis last night
