Lyric of the Week: FLOWER GIRL

There’s a silver moon shining down on an early spring night

I wait downstairs wondering if what I’m about to do is right

The front door opens, and I nervously shuffle my feet

And my heart does the obligatory skip of a beat

She asks me what took me seven months to come see her

But I didn’t know what to say just that I wanted to be with her

I was lonely looking for some company and like they say,

her name came up

She was waiting all this time I guess she never gave up


Flower girl

Oh sha la la baby

Flower girl

Won’t you be my lady

You’re driving me crazy

Tell me what you feel

‘Cause sometimes I don’t know if you’re only teasing me

Or if you mean what you say for real


Well I met her at the end of the summer on King George Street

She was stuck in the city without anyplace to sleep

I said I knew a good place to put her up, but it turned out a goof

‘Cause we slept in the bomb shelter instead of up on the roof

Maybe that incident made me really look uncool

But tonight I’m gonna show her that I’m made of something,

that I’m not just another fool

I wanna let her know it and I hope she’ll understand

That’s why I got these flowers in my hand


Flower girl ...


Well she’s so nice

She’s so pretty

I think I could love her but I’m too scared to show it

But I’ll treat her right as best as I can

And she never turns me away any time I call

Well she’s so cute

She’s so funny

She’ll kill me with her cuteness before I know it

But there’s one thing she doesn’t understand:

It’s either all or none and I want it all


Flower girl ...

"Based on a true story" ... one that took place in the mid-1980s during my army service. Ultimately the relationship, such as it was, led nowhere, but for awhile, though, it turned me into a mushy romantic. The song was loosely based on John Cafferty's "Boardwalk Angel," from the Eddie and the Cruisers soundtrack, which was in heavy rotation on my Walkman at the time. Never recorded or performed.
