7 Sep '70 Country


Aw, we walked the streets of Greenwich Village Holdin' hands like school kids in the summer August sun Smilin' at the passing strangers on their way And wishin' the end would never come Then a flower lady sold me one red rose to give you For your chestnut hair, just to make it shine Then I held it close to me, and I whispered Joli girl, when will you be mine

Then we stepped up to the first stand on the corner For some coconut champagne And a taxi driver cussed us, 'cause a blind man got his tip And tapped "thank you" with his cane And we ducked out of the rain into a dusty little shop That traded books and fluffy hats, rings and beads Then I held it close to me, and I whispered Joli girl, you're all I need Aw, Joli girl, please don't ask me how long I'll be stayin' You and your dandy ship of dreams that we can share Tomorrow is just another day, I'm maybe far away Joli girl, I might be anywhere So let's spread our blanket in the park and hold each other close The night is coming on and soon we'll have to go But remember, Joli girl, oh remember Joli girl, I love you so
