Cletis Carr Strangers Lyrics

Last updated: 08/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

Strangers come and strangers go, I guess that's strange enough
They say don't ever trust a stranger, and never call his bluff
The cards on the table, they're dealt by Cain and Abel
A stranger once taught me about all that stuff

Strangers look like you and me, or at least I think they do
Strangers speak Swahili, and they live in Kalamazoo
They'll tell you that the anecdote is just a technicolour raincoat
And if you can afford it, you can always get the tattoo
Strangers everywhere, strangers by the pair
All around town and across the nation
It's an alarming situation, strangers, everywhere

Strangers live on tree-lined streets and sleep on park benches
Strangers walk on wooden feet and sit on picket fences
Some strangers have their own TV shows and watch their dough
And trade their bungalow for big palacial residences

A stranger is a friend you've never met
I read that on a bus, I couldn't say who wrote it
That's be impetuous
Strangers just might change, ah wouldn't that be strange
And one day, they might become one of us

Strangers everywhere, strangers by the pair
All around town and across the nation
It's an alarming situation, strangers, everywhere
