SONG LYRICS

From the moment I laid eyes on her
I had to look away
It was all too inconvenient
Like a detour in the way
While the cool winds of September
Came roaring down the lake
We smiled and said the right things
Knowing this was a mistake
CHORUS
Lucy O’ my Lucy, baby why’d you make me care
Done with building families, finished done my share
But there’s a peace sign on the white board
And three words scrawled under that
The secrets of the universe
Read Lucy, Dog, and cat.

Now time’s a steady engine
And it moves us right along
Banging the piano
Can lead to love of song
Though I swore to keep my distance
Fate had kinder goals
All pink and wise and full of life
And always on the go
CHORUS
REFRAIN
Life is dressed in irony, all the things we can’t predict
Lists and plans are happenstance
To the real lives that we live
And she love’s her Daddy’s stories
Irreverent but kind
Funny and flirtatious, but she has her stormy side
And when our homes her runway
For flippant fashion fun
I get prophetic glimpses of the woman she’ll become
CHORUS
FINALE
And she sang her little anthem
From the carseat in the back
The secrets of MY universe
Read Lucy dog and cat.
