Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The - Sunday Afternoons On Wisdom Ave. Lyrics




A modest triple decker in a section that was working class
Not a lot of company but we would go there after mass
Lace curtains in the windows that had been there since the last great war
They were on first one and the Mulligans lived on the second floor

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave.

There was nothing in the pantry and we can't be in the parlor there
It's really nothing fancy honey here is a half a dollar dear
A John F. Kennedy coin that you and your brother both can share
Just not the type of people that are ever gonna to put on airs

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave.

Outside on the playground there's a pick-up game of hoops
Picked up the Sunday Journal at the Greeks
We would watch the Filipinos with the Yoyo's on the stoop
But no not on your life six days a week

No one was ever listening to anybody else
We only ever knew what we were told
Only on Wisdom Avenue on Sunday afternoons
Wisdom Ave's where everything grew old

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Had to be there just to see first hand
Whatever had happened to my old man

Sunday driving in the big Sedan
Soup and sandwich on the TV stand
Glad to be there it was nice to have
Sunday afternoons on Wisdom Ave.

  10. STOPMAKINGMEUSEMYNAME

    @BandP136 Are they coming to the UK though?

  11. STOPMAKINGMEUSEMYNAME

    @BandP136 Only if they decide to come to London/Brighton. It'd be too much after watching Reel Big Fish and Streetlight Manifesto touring the States from across the pond.
