Ivy On The Wall

I see men in suits with suitcases
Struggling to get ahead
Billing time on an hourly basis
With one eye on the clock
With one eye on the clock
With one eye on the clock

Inch by inch
Day by day
Like Ivy On The Wall
Like Ivy On The Wall

I see lovers’ tears roll down sad faces (their pillows) I see lover’s pillows soak up their tears
Struggling to move on
Longing for those sweet embraces
Their pillows soaking up their tears
Their pillows soaking up their tears
Their pillows soaking up their tears

Inch by inch
Day by day
Like Ivy On The Wall
Like Ivy On The Wall

How many carrots on sticks does it take
To get a mule to pull the plow of your life

Inch by inch
Day by day
Like Ivy On The Wall
Like Ivy On The Wall
