My eyes adored you,
though I never laid a hand on you, my eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me, you couldn't see how I adored you,
so close, so close and yet so far.
Carried your books from school,
playiny make-believe you're married to me
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth, when we came to be.
Walking home ev'ry day
over Bonnicut Bridge and Bay,
till we grew into the me and you who went our separate ways.
Headed for city lights,
climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone, made myself a name.
Funny I seemed to find,
that no matter how the years unwind,
still I reminisce 'bout the girl I miss and the love I left behind.
*All my life I will remember,
*how warm and tender we were way back then, wow wow baby
*Oh, the feeling, sad regrets
*I know I won't ever forget you, my childhood friend.
*Während dieser Zeilen und danach singt der Chor zweimal den Kehrreim.
