Taxi


                You see, she was gonna be an actress and I was gonna learn to fly.
                She took off to find the footlights and I took off for the sky.
                And here, she's acting happy inside her handsome home,
                And me, I'm flying in my taxi, taking tips, getting stoned.


                                                                                    Harry Chapin

I wonder how traditional cab companies are going to survive with competition from Uber? Funny poem.

Perfect lyrics for the photo. Years ago one of the themes was "taxi" and I was amazed at the variety.

Aw, love Harry Chapin - and your yellow taxis. I used to think there was a song called 'The Yellow Rows of Taxis' when I was younger!

A great combination of words and photo.

An unusual model car for a cab, at least from here.
