I'm standing outside on the balcony
balloon man is passing below
making his way to the park by the church
he goes where the little ones go

balloon man's a little bit ragged
his glasses are slightly askew
one lens is cracked and shoes never match
he might have a screw loose or two

and you're so far away
on the other side of the world
I thought you might like to know
that balloon man lives in it too

his rig is a marvel of equipoise
Leonardo might've designed
bamboo for the wide horizontal
pine for the vertical rise

he's wearing in a flag-bearers harness
he's holding the whole thing aloft
balloons all arrayed, he's a one man parade
if he ran he'd surely take off

and you're so far away
on the other side of the world
I just thought you should know
that balloon man lives in it too

but it's cold up here on the balcony
and it's time that I went back inside
balloon man waits for the light at the corner
I'll watch til he goes out of sight

but there's a wind that whips round the corner
and he's having a hell of a time
he staggers and it looks like he might just go over
but balloon man he puts up a fight

and you're so far away
on the other side of the world
I just thought you should know
that balloon man lives in it too
