Track Name: My Irish Cleopatra
I woke up in Boston
Late and hungover
I crawled through Allston
as it began to stir
I crept down Harvard Avenue
blinking fast and sweating beer
The T came rolling past me
wicked pissah to my ear

We shared a pizza
sat there for a while
the sun was shining
you had pesto in your smile
til I get back to Harlem
over land or over sea
until I see you darling
I will clutch that memory

Load out from the show
pack up the car
pick up the phone
til the lonely leaves my bones
your voice alone can guide me

Here I go now
I'm on my way back home
I'm like Julius Caesar
within sight of Rome
My Irish Cleopatra
sitting in your golden throne
a battered thrift shop armchair
I carried on the subway home
