Mysterious Boot

A song that randomly popped into my head when I saw a lone boot abandoned outside the train station on my way home from work.

I see you standing
there on the sidewalk
all alone without your twin

You're covered with dirt
and smell like old cheese
and I wonder where you've been

[chorus]
Mysterious welly, mysterious boot
do you know where you belong?
mysterious welly, mysterious boot
has your journey been hard and long?
In this world where we all walk
Down a winding garden path
There's a place I want go
My dirty, plastic friend
[/chorus]

On which foot did you fit?
Who did you carry there
to the place you lay abandoned?
Did your wearer even care?
Just a boot without a twin
why do you matter so much to me?
For a man without a friend
you could be a perfect fit

Even though your journey's done
and your brother is elsewhere
even dirty and alone
know I care, know I care

[chorus repeats]

The End
