Lyrics
CHERRY AVENUE
Copyright 2006 Bill Gaunce

Well this cross-town traffic is a bitch tonight
Everybody?s hurrying home it?s time for dinner
And the announcer on the radio
Says something bout the lotto
I think we?ve found a winner

And the traffic report cuts in, breaking news
They?re just cleaning up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue

Down on Cherry Avenue

Just a sea of headlights
One after another stretching on for miles & miles
And sitting in a Cadillac
A bleached out blonde sings Black Is Black
Then turns to me and smiles
I told her ?bout what I heard, nothing new
They?re just cleaning up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue

Now it?s routine more or less I guess
They always do their best
When they?re just cleanin? up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue
cleanin? up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue

Down on Cherry Avenue (x4)

If I could buy an airplane
I?d fly over the shortcut down to Cherry Avenue
And I could take you with me
We?d fly over the clouds, there?s only room for two
We?d write up in the sky for all to view
They?re just cleaning up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue
They?re just cleaning up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue
They?re just cleaning up that mess
Cleaning up that mess
Down on Cherry Avenue
Down on Cherry Avenue
