Alonzo Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
And when I think of Alonzo-
He was king around the bay
He'd come sporting and flashing
Hearts would drift away
Verse 2
Could be-he had a dream-
Came upon the scene where the
Lamb and lion play
How could he start to school her
Or rule her with feet of sand and clay
Verse 3
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 4
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 5
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 6
Could be-he had a dream-
Came upon the scene where the
Lamb and lion play
How could he start to school her
Or rule her with feet of sand and clay
Verse 7
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 8
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 9
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Alonzo declared that he must
"Reach to heaven-for heaven"
Verse 10
Don't you know Alonzo put
Out his hand one day
Don't you know Alonzo
Lifted up his head to pray
Verse 11
So good for you, my dear Alonzo
So good for you, my dear Alonzo
So good for you, my dear Alonzo
So good for you, my dear Alonzo
Verse 12
Warm your heart
So warm the sun
Warm your soul
Verse 13
Welcome, Alonzo
So good to see you
Welcome, Alonzo
