"Lizzy" lyrics

Lizzy

Sign me up, I volunteer
Votes are in for lifeguard of the year
Her feline past lives are plain
To see their similarities are shown in this life again

Like mama said
Don't you let it go to your head
When you know you're being fed
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy, I'll write, I'll sing
Telegraph, telegram
Telephone, telling you
I'll be home soon
Dayenu

We will wake when kitty licks
And in the morn, work takes her to Maine
Dressed and out the door by six
Tomorrow is the first time Liz can't board my plane

Like mama said
Don't you let it go to your head
When you know your book is read
I'm so proud to know you
Anna will take me to the port
As Liz drives up I-95
Me and my darling keep love alive
Even on Texas time

And like my mama said
Don't you let it go to your head
When your town is painted red
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy, I'll write, I'll sing
Telegraph, telegram
Telephone, telling you
I'll be home soon
Dayenu

Telephone, telling you
I'll be home soon
Dayenu
I love you
