Could be
Language: English 
Could be Hastings Street,
Or Lenox Avenue,
Could be Eighteenth & Vine
And still be true. 
Could be Fifth & Mound,
Could be Rampart. 
When you pawned my watch
You pawned my heart. 
Could be you love me,
Could be [that] you don't. 
Might be that you'll come back,
Like as not you won't. 
Hastings Street is weary,
Also Lenox Avenue. 
Any place is dreary
Without my watch and you.
