Lyrics

If you lived in Pigeon Street,
Here are the people you could meet.
Here are the people who would say,
Hello, Goodbye, Hello, Goodbye,
Every day

If you lived in Pigeon Street,
Here are the people you could meet.
Here are the people who would share
The sights, the sounds, the air, where...
Pigeons beat, their wings, wings beat.
Pigeons beat, their wings, wings beat.

To meet in Pigeon Street.
