BUDGET SHOES

We're walking through the Valley of Ghosts.
You're walking through in your Budget Shoes.
My Sleeping Boots,
They slow down the wind.
You said, 'We get this wrong, it weighs a fortune.'
It weighs a fortune.

Can't go to sleep in the Valley of Ghosts.
You won't take your eyes of my Sleeping Boots.
I dreamed her face.
I saw her again.
'To the disgrace of all,
I'm in Heaven.'

Heaven. Heaven. Heaven.

Oh I awoke in the Valley of Ghosts.
All that remained were your Budget Shoes.
Sleeping Boots,
They slow down the wind,
They lighten up your dreams and weigh a fortune.
They had been taken.

Don't go to sleep in the Valley of Ghosts!
Can't get to sleep in these Budget Shoes!
I'm walking home through the Valley of Ghosts.
Can't do a thing in these Budget Shoes.
