Miracle Row

Miracle Row

Janis Ian

Marie lives on Miracle Row
She tells fortunes, you know
for a dollar a throw
Every pimp and every gigolo
has made love in the afternoon
to the lady by the windowsill

Five healthy children and a home of your own
Back on Miracle Row, they all follow the show
Soap operas in the afternoon

And the old ladies swear at the sun like a sauna
on the tenement stair all the boys play the conga
There's a chill in the air
and yes, they're gonna break out of here

T.V. In the summer heat
Talk show hard to beat
'til she hits the street
Ripping pavement underneath her heels
with the poetry of motion in chains
and the lady by the window pane

Five healthy children and a home of your own
Back on Miracle Row, they all follow the show
Love interest in the afternoon

And the old men swoon, and the sun gets hotter
Someone mumbles a tune, and the young men spot her
running up to the room
And yes, they've gotta get out of here soon

Five healthy children and a home of your own
Back on Miracle Row, they all count on the show
Soap opera in the afternoon

The old ladies swear at the boys playing conga
on the tenement stair, and the sun is like a sauna
There's a chill in the air
and yes, they're gonna break out of here
