“You scour the Bowery, ransack the Bronx,
Through funeral parlors and honky-tonks.
From river to river you comb the town
For a place to lay your family down.”

Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
Twill be in the valley of love and delight.”
