Hey, margaret, i left you a note, did you get what i wrote?
I laid it between your records
It said i'm changing my mind, and i'm leaving to find
An answer for both of us
I think that it's better that we be apart;
I've got to find out what life is about
I'll drop you a postcard from time to time
When i, when i, get to love city
Hey, margaret, i landed today, and i flew all the way:
Now i know what you'll say about airplanes;
If god had meant us to fly
We'd be amply supplied with wings
Ah, didn't he?
I can't waste a minute, a minute won't wait
How would you like if i found it a minute too late?
Margaret, i miss you, want you by my side
While i'm, while i'm in love city
Hey, margaret, i'm not comin' home, and i'll stay here alone
If you can't get free to follow
But margaret, the days are so few, won't you please hurry, too?
There's so much we must do for tomorrow
It's getting much closer, it's coming your way
And something more beautiful happens
Inside me everyday!
I'm sending a flower; they're hard to find
They grow, as you know, in love city
