I'm a long way off
But I'm still around
Sitting on the couch
I'm watching you
And if I take my time

I just know that you're worth the wait
It's of no concern
It's a risk I'd gladly take
From time to time

[Chorus:]
Don't worry about yourself at all
I'll hang your work up on my wall
Hose you down and dress you up real nice
With some brand new plans and a fancy car
Try to place your superstar
'Cause you can tell the story of your life
Without slummin' in paradise

I wonder how you feel
Or do I?
Standing on the corner
How's your view?
From the other side
Oh, Mr. Right
Its not a pretty sight alone

[Chorus]

You won't often see this letter
Handed over right away
I know the first time I found you wonderful

[Chorus]

Without slummin'
Slummin' in paradise
Slummin' in paradise
