MacArthur's Park
/R
Spring was never waiting for us, dear
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages we were pressed,
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

# MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down...
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no! #

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground beneath your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing chinese checkers by the trees

There will be another song for me
And I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers from the sky.
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one
And I'll ask myself why...

Repeat #
