Song so sweet
You would sing to me
In the loft above the garage

Stories told
In a voice so frail and thin
You’re the errand; I’m a clown

And it’s even in your name
Where the vowel plants a sound to tame
The answer that remains
For you now

I would rather be
Together with my friends to see
All the world before we’re gone

But would you go alone
If the offer ever clearly shone
Cut your hair and change your tongue

It was even on your face
When the rabbit ran to set the pace
And failed to bestow its grace
On you now

So leave your lovers by the bay
Overseas, and in an early grave
More are sure to find their way
To you now
