Windin' your way down on Baker Street,
Light in your head and dead on your feet.
Well another crazy day,
You'll drink the night away
And forget about everything.
~ Baker Street (1978)

Song lyrics[edit]

City to City (1978)[edit]

  • Windin' your way down on Baker Street,
    Light in your head and dead on your feet.
    Well another crazy day,
    You'll drink the night away
    And forget about everything.
    This city desert makes you feel so cold.
    It's got so many people, but it's got no soul.
    And it's taking you so long
    To find out you were wrong,
    When you thought it had everything.
  • But you know he'll always keep movin';
    You know he's never gonna stop movin.
    Cus he's rollin',
    He's the rollin' stone.

    And when you wake up it's a new mornin'.
    The sun is shinin' it's a new morning.
    You're goin',
    You're goin' home.

    • Baker Street
  • You know I need your love, you got that hold over me.
    As long as I got your love, you know that I'll never leave.
    When I wanted you to share my life, I had no doubt in my mind.
    And it's been you, woman, right down the line.
    • Right Down the Line

Night Owl (1979)[edit]

  • You still got that light in your eye,
    And our day is comin’ by and by.
    I’m travellin’ this long road here with you;
    We still gotta long way, we still gotta long way to go.
    • Days Gone By
  • Night comes down and finds you alone
    In a space and time of your own,
    Lost in dreams in a world full of shadows.

    Down the street the neon light shines,
    Offering refuge and hope to the blind,
    Who stumble in with no thought of tomorrow.

    Yes I get lonely when the sun gets low,
    And I end up looking for some winner goal.
    Yes I should know better but I can't say no.

  • Out on the street I was talkin' to a man.
    He said "there's so much of this life of mine that I don't understand."
    You shouldn't worry I said, that ain't no crime.
    'Cause if you get it wrong you'll get it right next time, next time.
    • Get It Right Next Time

With Stealers Wheel[edit]

  • Well I don't know why I came here tonight.
    I got the feeling that something ain't right.
    I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
    And I'm wondering how I'll get down the stairs.
    Clowns to the left of me,
    Jokers to the right, here I am,
    Stuck in the middle with you.
