His feet are dirty 
And his face, his face is long
And while he's peeking out
 Through his hair he hides the pain
Till that Lennon song comes along
He'll turn it off and say can you drive?

Jimmy, we need to borrow this for a minute 
'Cause we need to escape 

Now there's so many things that
He's gonna do in 5 lifetimes 
Hell I could do 'em all
Yeah and while he's rolling his own smokes 
He says to me he's buying a new ride today 
A classic deal the boss will give
He said the same thing two weeks ago

You've seen that sweaty jet rag
 Feeling come over him, and I've
Seen that boy nod into a dream a time or two
And on his way out his glazed stare
Will make you stop and wonder 
Hey William is that the last time
I'm gonna look at you?

But the next day phone will ring
And it will be him
Can you drive?
Jimmy, what would you say
what would you do
Oh should I pray?
Or do you think that this blind mind
 Would listen to me, anyway
