On a day I didn't really know
Time and place, it was just for show
With my hand on the wheel, it's shaking
A pedal with a mind of it's own
A circus there a man is waiting
With a job he says he's now vacating
Trapeze, it wasn't really my thing
But a caravan with time to sing in

Walking Sunday
Talking Monday
Fall in my way
Chalk on slate

Travel with the wind today
Thinking in an opposite way
With my mind going back to forward
Amusing though it is I can't say
Not a literal sound I'm trying to make
A strange's voice applying the brake
With the ball on the end, it's swinging
A chain is looking me in the face

Walking Sunday
Talking Monday
Fall in my way
Chalk on slate
Caught on highways
Lie down sideways
Fall on my way
Have to shout
