The Beautiful Elaine

We were nineteen and I wondered,

What would it be like to hold your hand?

To hold the hand of the beautiful Elaine.

So I held your hand - and it was nice...

We were nineteen and I wondered,

What it would it be like to kiss your lips?

To kiss the lips of the beautiful Elaine.

So I kissed your lips - and it was nice...

We were nineteen and I wondered,

What would it be like to hold you close?

To hold close the beautiful Elaine.

So I held you in my arms - and it was nice...

We were nineteen and I wondered,

What would it be like to love you?

To love the beautiful Elaine.

So I fell in love with you - and it was nice...

We were nineteen my beautiful Elaine.

I love you now as I loved you then.

Together, we’ll be nineteen forever,

And it is nice - so very, very nice...
