Gumboots

ŠPaul Simon, released on Graceland, 1986

.

I was having this discussion

In a taxi heading downtown,

Rearranging my position

On this friend of mine who had

A little bit of a breakdown,

I said hey no breakdowns come

And breakdowns go.

So what are you going to do about it

That's what I'd like to know.

You don't feel you could love me

But I feel you could.

.

It was in the early morning hours

When I fell into a phone call.

Believing I had supernatural powers

I slammed into a brick wall,

I said hey, is this my problem?,

Is this my fault?,

If that's the way it's going to be

I'm going to call the whole thing to a halt,

.

You don't feel you could love me

But I feel you could,

You don't feel you could love me

But I feel you could.

.

[Pause]

.

I was walking down the street

When I thought I heard this voice say,

Say ain't we walking down the same street together

On the very same day,

I said hey Senorita that's astute

I said, why don't we get together

And call ourselves an institute

.

You don't feel you could love me

But I feel you could,

You don't feel you could love me

But I feel you could.
