the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker

"Baker Street" is a ballad written and recorded by Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty. Released as a single in 1978, it reached No. 1 in Canada and Australia, No. 2 in the United States and No. 3 in the United Kingdom. (wiki)

“This city desert makes you feel so cold
It's got, so many people but it's got no soul.”

“And it's taken you so long
To find out you were wrong
When you thought it held everything.”

“Another year and then you'll be happy
Just one more year and then you'll be happy.”

“He's got this dream about buying some land
He's gonna give up the booze and the one-night stands
 and then he'll settle down,
In some quiet little town,
and forget about everything.”

“And when you wake up, it's a new morning
The sun is shining, it's a new morning
And you're going, you're going home.”
