lyrics

When I was young I kept my tongue in my pocket,
And a spoonful of cold molasses stuck in my mouth,
But my mind was racing like a solid-fuel rocket,
With ideas of love and romance running around,

I spent my days applying varnish and lacquer,
But my mind was stuck inside my head like a jar,
But my heart shot skyward like a lit fire cracker,
When we met on the train inside a passenger car,

I've been stammering for forty years,
But it's coming easy on the fourth of July,
I am grounded by the sound of your voice,
But I am flying from the look in your eyes,

Across the table in the car I would stair on,
And I couldn't tell you how it happened or why,
But when you asked me if I might like to share one,
Out came an eloquent and witty reply,

We watched the fireworks climb up in the heavens,
And light up all of the mid-summer sky,
We fell asleep around ten or eleven,
In each other's arms as the country went by.
