    after all the jacks are in their boxes
    and the clowns have all gone to bed
    you can hear happiness staggering on down the street footsteps dressed in red

    and the wind whispers mary

    a broom is drearily sweeping up the broken pieces of yesterdays life
    somewhere a queen is weeping
    somewhere a king has no wife

    and the wind, it cries mary

    the traffic lights, they turn, uh, blue tomorrow
    and shine their emptiness down on my bed
    the tiny island sags down stream
    cause the life that lived is, is dead

    and the wind screams mary

    uh-will the wind ever remember the names it has blow in the past?
    and with this crutch, its old age
    and its wisdom it whispers, "no, this will be the last"

    and the wind cries mary
