Sunday Supplement Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
In the summer and her pinafore
She thought she'd love for ever more
How soon things sour
Verse 2
Past the bewitching hour she finds
Herself in winter deep inside her coat
The past is just an anecdote
She can't forget for it's her alphabet of time
Verse 3
Will there be a war
Will she die or will she know?
And find the pain of youth still shows?
Verse 4
Like Mary Tyler-Moore
She stares across the yawning tide
Out of love and terrified
Verse 5
In the Sunday color magazine
She reads a line and then she dreams
Of what she'll do when she leaves you again
Verse 6
She knows that home
Was once a wild unknown
As always her own chaperon
Catch the bus from wilderness or to
Verse 7
Hold on tight, catch that bus
Fares please, ding ding ding
Verse 8
