MARIANNE

Three dreams of Marianne this week and it’s only Tuesday
I can’t wait to see her for real
And it occurred to me there’s nowhere near enough collusion
As I sipped my Mojito and finished my meal
‘Cos her hair is like the sun, and her eyes are like the sky
I fly across them in my mind
But I’m evicted from my thoughts by the captain with a glare
Who wants my table now that I’ve dined



Oh Marianne it’s my plan to be much closer to you
Oh Marianne, if I can, I’ll be much closer to you



I’ve been a week on this shining little island
But my legs and my feet are worn out
When I get home I’m going to stay in for a fortnight
Staying in is last year’s going out



Oh Marianne it’s my plan to be much closer to you
Oh Marianne, if I can, I’ll be much closer to you



If I had a dollar for every thought of her I’d take that upgrade to first class
I’d wear some Chinos and a stylish cotton shirt
And sip the champagne from my glass

Oh Marianne it’s my plan to be much closer to you
Oh Marianne, if I can, I’ll be much closer to you

Oh Marianne it’s my plan to be much closer to you
Oh Marianne, if I can, I’ll be much closer to you
