Dates
Dates for me
Can't see the forest for the trees
All dressed for autumn in their reds and yellows, pretty as you please
Merrily, now, we sing:
True love is but a dream

Dates
Dates
Dates the trees
Can't see the forest for me
Filling up my memory with their clove-orange scented verbal potpourris
Merrily, now, we sing:

True love is but a dream that we've slept
Right though as the year wears on
'Til tonight in the light of 11th street
I wake up (say it)
You wake me up (say it)

[Bass melody]
...Merrily, merrily
Downstream into what?

(Small talk)
Wake me up
(Cold walks home)
I've had enough
On the mornings after
Fake laughter
Still ringing in my ears

And another
Phone number
To fear

Dates
Dates
Dates then Fall
Writing in cursive on the wall:
"Winter is coming and he's really got it in for y'all
So merrily, merrily
Row, row yourselves upstream

'Cause True Love is but a dream that y'all've slept right
Through as the year grows old
'Til tonight in the light of 11th street:
You wake up [instrumental answer]
She wakes you up" [instrumental answer

[Mandolin solo w/ fiddle melody]

Love, the night when we kissed on 11th street
I woke up (say it)
You woke me up (say it)
Fall was right, (Fall was right)
My Darling:

No
More
Dates
For me
