lyrics

SHEL SILVERSTEIN

Voice of my Mother
Voice of my Father
They lifted the words from the page

And ever since then
After listening to them
I’ve never acted my age

There’s a light in the attic
And I know where the sidewalk ends
Shel Siverstein was my friend

Like opening a door
Like biting a peach
My mind flooded with song

Ridiculous truth sayer
Ludicrous soothsayer
Taught me between right and wrong

There’s a light in the attic
And I know where the sidewalk ends
Shel Siverstein was my friend

The world is a drag
It’s lonely and said for a boy who’s new in this town
But Backwards Bill and God’s Driven Wheel
Are friends that won’t let you down

There’s a light in the attic
And I know where the sidewalk ends
Shel Siverstein was my friend

Voice of my Mother
Voice of my Father
Voice of a man dressed in Black

Poetry passing from one to another
Some words you cannot take back
Some words you cannot take back

There’s a light in the attic
And I know where the sidewalk ends
Shel Siverstein was my friend
