Oh my darling, oh my lover
Tell me that there is no other
I love you with my heart

You'll soon be waking
To find
Your heart is aching

Faithful as a morning sunrise
And sacred as a love can be
That's how I will love you, oh darling

Yes, oh yes, long distance
I'll accept the charge, I'll pay
Which loved one is calling me?
I did not hear you say

Baltimore, Maryland
New York City

He said, "You're a young boy."
Said, "You got a lot to learn."
Said, "Reach out! Take my hand!
You'll understand!"

But now I
Look at the night
And it don't seem so lonely
We fill it up with only two

And the rockets' red glare
The bombs bursting in air
They gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there

From the mountains
To the prairies
To the oceans white with foam

Well she walked in the shoe store
Gave the man a tip
Told him to go buy himself
A rocket ship

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can't help bein' confused
If it's true, please tell me dear

Out of the cold and foggy night
Came the British ship "The Hood"
And every British seaman
He knew and understood

Well I know
Our love will always be

And since you're here
The time seems just fine
To let you know that you're gonna be with me
Till I lose my mind

You don't remember me
But I remember you
'Twas not so long ago
You broke my heart in two

There she was
Just a-walkin' down the street

Well I never felt more like runnin' away
But why should I go
'Cause I couldn't stay without you

Don't be ashamed
Let your conscience be your guide
But I know deep down inside of me
I believe you love me
Forget your foolish pride

You say you don't like boys too fast
But it's the only way
I can look at you and say
Here in my arms is where you belong

Though I smiled
The tears inside were burning
I wished him luck and then he said goodbye

Stealing my Marie
(Stealing my Marie)
Someone better tell her (Uh-huh)
She belongs to me

Millions of hearts have been broken
Just because these words were spoken
I love you, yes I do, I love you
If you break my heart, I'll die

Black boy in Chicago
Playing in the street
Not enough to wear
Not near enough to eat
But don't you know he saw it
On a July afternoon

In the jungle
The quiet jungle

But like a dream
You've vanished from view
My lonely lips
Are hungry for your kisses


I found an island in your arms
Country in your eyes
Arms that chain us
Eyes that lied

How's by you?
How's by you the family?
How's your sister Emily?
She's nice too
