    If I could save time in a bottle
    The first thing that I'd like to do
    Is to save every day
    'Til eternity passes away
    Just to spend them with you

    Like the pine trees lining the winding road
    I got a name, I got a name
    Like the singing bird and the croaking toad
    I got a name, I got a name
    And I carry it with me like my daddy did

    Lyrics
    Operator, well could you help me place this call?
    See, the number on the matchbook is old and faded
    She's living in L.A. with my best old ex-friend Ray
    A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated
    Isn't that the way they say it goes? Well, let's forget all that

    Well the South side of Chicago
    Is the baddest part of town
    And if you go down there
    You better just beware of a man named Leroy Brown

    Lyrics
    Uptown got it's hustlers
    The bowery got it's bums

    Yeah, he big and dumb as a man can come
