Lyrics of Taxi

It was rainin' hard in Frisco
I needed one more fare to make my night
A lady up ahead waved to flag me down she got in at the light
Oh where ya goin' to my lady blue
It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain
She just looked out the window
She said sixteen
Parkside Lane
Somethin' about her was familiar
I could swear I've seen her face before
But she said
I'm sure you're mistaken
And she didn't say anything more
It took a while but she looked in the mirror
Then she glanced at the license for my name
A smile seemed to come to her slowly
It was a sad smile just the same
And she said how are ya Harry
I said how are ya Sue
Through the too many miles and the too little smiles
I still remember you
It was somewhere in a fairy tale
I used to take her home in my car
We learned about love in the back of a Dodge
The lesson hadn't gone too far
Ya see she was gonna be an actress and I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
I took off to find the sky
Whoa I've got somethin' inside me to drive a princess blind
There's a wild man where's he at
He hidin' in me illuminating my mind
Oh I've got somethin' inside me not what my life's about
'Cos I've been livin' my outside timely over till my time draws out
There was not much more for us to talk about
Whatever we had once was gone
So I turned my cab into the driveway
Past the gate and the fine trimmed lawns
And she said we must get together
But I knew it'd never be arranged
Then she hands me twenty dollars for a two fifty fare
She said
Harry keep the change
Well another man might have been angry
And another man might have been hurt
But another man never would've let her go
I stashed the bill in my shirt
And she walked away in silence
It's strange how you never know
But we'd both gotten what we'd asked for such a long long time ago
Ya see she was gonna be an actress and I was gonna learn to fly
She took off to find the footlights
I took off for the sky
And here she is actin' happy inside her handsome home
And me I'm flyin' in my taxi takin' tips and gettin' stoned
I go flyin' so high when I'm stoned
