Hair of gold and lips red as wine
And she promised someday she'd be mine
She promised we'd wed on the fourth of July
And raise up a family and love 'til we die
But our lives were not meant to entwine
The most beautiful voice ever heard
And it certainly filled up the room
When a stranger in church heard her belt out a tune
He promised her stardom, the sun, and the moon
Off she went saying "See you next summer"
It was nine years before she returned
No longer dainty and thin as a leaf
She hugged me and kissed me and fell to her knees
Sayin' "Darlin' I tried, but I'll never be free"
"Of your mad irresistable pull"
We could have been lovers and partners for life
I guess we still could except for my wife
So I turned with a tear in my eye
