oak cliff bra lyrics – edie brickell

sittin’ on the front porch
in oak cliff
with my bra
watchin’ some cars go by
a lady with a baby
with only one shoe
walks by
baby on her shoulder
has his mouth open
more than his eyes
where’s his other shoe?
a little bird is bathin’
on the driveway
in a puddle of old rain
a station wagon honks
and swerves and almost
hits a squirrel
the squirrel gets crazy eyed
and zippers back and forth
across the pavement
talk about close calls
