lyrics

AMY''S BOULEVARD


Intro

It’s just a busy street
So why is it so sweet
To go
Down Merrion Row?
Not because it’s where they pay me
There’s another reason— Amy

It’s nothing special until May,
Then the trees
Weave a magic carpet of sunlight
And now that she’s back
It’s Amy’s;

And if you’ve got some business there
Maybe she’ll go by
And you'll know why
It's not just anywhere.

Ch.
Amy lead them on
Down the golden track
To love and sun;
Maybe you’ll look back
At some lucky one
On Merrion...

B part

Heads all twist,
There they go,
They can’t resist,
It’s Amy
With her retinue in tow;
She won’t blame me
For staring ‘cause she doesn’t even know
I exist

Middle/coda

And in the night
When I shut the heavy door
On too much, too little done
Maybe once more
I’ll see your shape divine,
And your eyes shine

Ch. (2)
Amy, lead us on
With your shaded eyes -
At six o’clock
You materialise
In your little frock
And then you’re gone

Ch. (3)
Amy, now it’s time
For the sun to set
Your goodbye throws
Sparks from your cigarette
And your phone glows
On your face sublime.
