The Man in the Raincoat Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Late in the evening out in the square
A man in a raincoat standing there
Verse 2
We met by the lamp where the newsboy cried
He stole my heart with his laughing eyes
Verse 3
He smiled as we climbed on the old street car
I blushed when he asked are you traveling far
Verse 4
The next time we met the sun shined all day
We walked and we talked 'til the evening was gray
Verse 5
He took me dancing we danced until dawn
No happier couple had ever born
Verse 6
I felt like a queen and he was my king
He borrowed some money to buy me a ring
Verse 7
But I'm still alone the cards are all down
He's taken my money and skipped out of town
Verse 8
Now when I pass the place where we met
I'm wondering if I would forgive and forget
Verse 9
Though fickle is my heart and foolishly proud
I still keep on looking when out in a crowd
Verse 10
For a man in raincoat standing there
With laughing eyes and dark brown hair
