The Lisa Song (1991) Lyrics

Chocolate-sueded Lisa rolls her olive cat's-eyes
When my jaded tongue slips and begins to criticize
She digs cowboy-booted feet into receding ground
Because every friend she's ever loved has let her down

You ask me what is going on with you two?
Well, Li and I know even less than you pretend to

But I love you
Oh, Lisa
Oh, Oh, Oh
Ho, hum

I'm painting Romeo Loves Juliet in Washington Square
As if to let the stone and rodents know that we've been there
Or I'm exhausted on her shoulder on the ferry at three
And sometimes when we're alone, she'll even sleep on me

We play Cat in the afternoon
And by night the towers cover the moon
Can the sun be coming up so soon?
Stay, Lisa
Have some tea with me, Lisa
Ho, hum

She's rolling cigarettes crosslegged in her canvas chair
And from the bed I see her smiling under all that hair
And when she finally says "I love you," which she has to qualify
Well, I don't think I can blame her, because so do I

She says "I'll never fall in love with you"
I said "Li, you don't have to"
And the skies above Sheep Meadow were blue

For you, Lisa
Oh, Oh, Oh
Ho, hum
