Lyrics

I wish I knew Margery
But I wonder if she’d like me
I don’t know about horses
So maybe she could teach me

I think she’s from Kentucky
With blue grass beneath the sun
Where the capital is Frankfort
Not too far from Lexington

Dear, dear Adam
All those women in your songs
You’re not a clown only wishing you were beautiful

Dear, dear Adam
When I was singing to your songs
It was the last time he thought I was beautiful

I’d like to know Anna
And Amy and Elizabeth
But it’s the story that matters
So maybe it’s for the best

Let’s keep it a mystery
Who’s watching you sleeping
And who’s not believing
And living up in a tree

Dear, dear Adam
All those women in your songs
You’re not a clown only wishing you were beautiful

Dear, dear Adam
When I was singing to your songs
It was the last time he thought I was beautiful
It was the last time he thought I was beautiful
