I had came to New York City
In order to escape the harm and pity
Of my home back in Montana and
Make for myself a life that's grand.
But after I had walked around the city
And not found a single job,I had
Bumped into someone walking out of a pad
And caused her to fall on the sidewalk.
Of course,I did help her off the sidewalk
And apologize for doing what made her so sad,
Only to have her tell me that
I shouldn't feel like a total rat
And allow me to call her 'Helen',
Who also invites me to be her live-in
Life partner and stay inside that
Building with her rent free.
And after I had realized that it should be
Too good an offer for me to pass
Up,I had looked at my newfound high-class
Roommate and said,"Yes,that's fine with me."
