Bag Lady
by Ebn-Ozn

Through the New York winter
With rags around her feet
Clutching ancient shopping bags
Destitutions beat
Burned out like a frozen matchstick
Screaming at the wall
A helpless hungry lady
With no friends to call
Chorus:
I wonder
Where she goes when the night falls
What thunder
Has made us deaf to her calls?
Bag lady...
Oh gloveless, shattered frailty
The damp wind bites her hands
She shuffles by a restaurant
Towards their garbage cans
She eats the rotten refuse
Like vermin on the dead
Screaming at the passersby
"Get it through your heads!"
Repeat chorus
Sometimes on my way to work
I give her my spare change
The Shopping Bag Lady
Looks at me like I'm strange
She never once says thank you
But I don't mind a bit
All these homeless people
Can't make no sense of it
Repeat chorus

Imogene Coco,. Who knew, after all these years. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Yep! Imogene Coco was a brilliant comedian (most famously on "Your Show of Shows" with Sid Caesar) and, late in her career as "Aunt Edna" in National Lampoon's Vacation. She was also a genuinely nice person.

I guess it was this many years ago that half dollar coins were still in use?

Of all the 80's MTV videos/songs, this one stuck with me, after all these years 8}

I used to think I dreamt this video up. I would ask people if they remembered it, over the years, but no one did. Well, here it is. I love YouTube. Thanks for posting...

Todd Sundell

Yep, I remember it too!
