Jack and Lucy

 
 

 

Where are you going Lucy – what you doing girl?

Come on over – sit next to me.

I have something to ask you

O Lucy – will you marry me?

 

What are you saying Jack – what do you mean?

Marrying – we are just fifteen –

I surely do love you

Yes Jack – I will marry you.

 

And we’ll  mix the bright colors of our childhood dreams

With the gentle tones that only come with time

And all the beauty that life can hold

We’ll surely be yours and mine

 

Where are you going Lucy – what you doing girl?

Come on back and lie back down

For I want do feel your heart beat

O Lucy – lie with me a while…

 

What are you sayin’ Jack – can’t you see

The sun is high – it’s getting late

I do know how you love me

But Jack -  wait until  tonight

 

 

Where are you going Lucy – what you doing girl?

With that suitcase in your hand

Is there something you can’t tell me?

O Lucy, help me understand…

 

What are you sayin’ Jack – can’t you see

We are not children anymore

I’ll be thirty- two tomorrow

O Jack, I am leaving you.

 

We have lost the bright colors of our childhood dreams

And  somb er tons  have clouded up our minds

And I need the beauty that life can hold

That no longer is yours and mine

 

Where are you going Lucy – what you doing girl?

You married three times  - or is it four?

Don’t you think its time to come home

O Lucy what you’re  waiting for?

 

What are you sayin’ Jack – I can’t believe

You still want me – I am getting old.

Yes I know I always loved you

This time – I’ll never go.

 

Where are you goin’ Lucy, I can barely walk

You can’t hear me anymore

But I will follow you to the churchyard

And Lucy – I will burry you.

 

What are you sayin’ Jack – can’t you see

You can’t hear me anymore

Can’t you feel me in that west wind

O Jack, we’ll meet again

 

And we’ll mix the bright colors of our childhood dreams

With that gentle tongues  that only come in time

And all the beauty that life can hold

Will surely be yours and mine.
