Paul Simon - Darling Lorraine (text piesne)



Darling Lorraine

The first time I saw her
I couldn´t be sure
But the sin of impatience
Said, "she´s just what you´re looking for"

So I walked right up to her
And with the part or me that talks
I introduced myself as Frank
From New York New York

She´s so hot
She´s so cool
I´m not
I´m just a fool in love with darling Lorraine

All my life I´ve been a wanderer
Not really, I mostly lived near my parents´ home
Anyway Lorraine and I got married
And the usual marriage stuff
Then one day she says to me

From out of the blue
Frank, I´ve had enough
Romance is a heartbreaker
I´m not meant to be a homemaker
And I´m tired of being darling Lorraine

What - you don´t love me anymore?
What - you´re walking out the door?
What - you don´t like the way I chew?
Hey let me tell you

You´re not the woman that I wed
You say your´re depressed but you´re not
You just like to stay in bed
I don´t need you darling Lorraine

Darling Lorraine
Lorraine
I long for your love

Financially speaking
I guess I´m a washout
Everybody´s buy and sell
And sell and buy and
And that´s what the whole thing´s all about
If it had not been for Lorraine
I´d have left here long ago
I should have been a musician
I love the piano
She´s so light
She´s so free
I´m tight, well, that´s me
But I feel so good
With darling Lorraine

On Christmas morning frank awakes
To find Lorraine has made a stack of pancekes
They watch the television, husband and wife
All afternoon "it´s a wonderful life

What - you don´t love me anymore?
What - you´re walking out the door?
What - you don´t like the way I chew?
Hey let me tell you
You´re not the woman that I wed
Gimme my robe I´m going back to bed
I´m sick to death of you Lorraine

Darling Lorraine
Lorraine
Her hands like wood
The doctor was smiling
But the news wasn´t good
Darling Lorraine
Please don´t leave me yet
I know you´re in pain
Pain you can´t forget
Your breathing is like an echo of our love
Maybe I´ll go down to the corner store
And buy us something sweet
Here´s an extra blanket honey
To wrap around your feet

All the trees were washed with April rain
And the moon in the meadow
Took darling Lorraine
