He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones

And the people 'cross town don't know his name

But on Franklin Pike Circle he's king

1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero



Well, at five thirty-five at the corner of Franklin and Walnut

A blue station wagon comes slidin' around the corner

And on down Franklin Pike Circle all you're seein' is a streak of blue

And pulls in the drive at the address of 1432



And he says "My head aches and my back hurts and I don't feel like talkin'"

"Don't wan' go the show to see Doctor Zhivago"

"Don't wanna take the dog out walkin'"

"I wanna sit right here in this easy chair, it's been a jungle all day, you know"

The 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero is home



He was out pitching ball with the kids in the neighborhood yesterday

And the ole major-leaguer had to quit 'cause he said he threw his arm away

And the kids all hid behind the hedge and laughed at him but wouldn't let it show

Because they love him so,

He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero



He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones

An', ya know, people 'cross town don't know his name

But on Franklin Pike Circle he's king

Well , he won a little pony at the Hill High auction just the other day

And he di'n't mean to do it and he wanted to give the pony away

a-When they called out his name he tried not to claim it

But the kids started cryin' 'cause they'd already named it

And who's up ev'ry Saturday morning?

Saddling his new toy? You guessed it-

The 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Cowboy

'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones

Durin' Christmas took the kids down to see the floats

When he wanted t'stay home and watch the Baltimore Colts

Well the ten-thirty news usually finds our hero is a sleepy head

And Peter's out somewhere wreckin' the car

And the rest 'the kids have gone to bed

So she takes his hand, they climb the stairs and he falls asleep

And she bends over him so tenderly to kiss his cheek

'cause she loves him so, and she's lucky, you know?

To be married to the 1432,

1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero



He's the 1432 Franklin Pike Circle Hero

'n' you can see him ev'ry weekend with a carfull of kids and snow cones



FADE

Christmas time he took 'em down to see the floats

When he wanted t'stay home and watch the Baltimore Colts
