this is a tune for maryanne
died at birth in her grandfathers hands
if she were here now she wouldn’t understand
the notes we are playing,
the words we are saying
to her it would be just
la-da-da-la-da-dum…

there isn’t a cross word that i can say
because i’ve been blessed with a part in the play
but even if i don’t make the curtain call
i was in the cast, and i signed the wall

i’ll be the rich one this time and then
next time it’ll be you
you must believe that
after all maryanne
i would grow old and tall in this life,
but next time you’ll be richer, you’ll be taller
la-da-da-la-da-dum
