lyrics

Lulu lived her life like a child
wrapped up in arms that she kept all around her
then one day she passed by a man
who smiled as she held out her hand to him

And he said, “that’s very nice
but no thank you, I’m doing fine
all alone here, doing fine
on my own here.”
And she looked into his eyes for that lonely part
but no, he wasn’t lonely,
just alone
and as she turned and walked away she wondered, “maybe I can change that way.”

Lulu she packed up her bag
opened the door and tipped her hat to him
then she said, “ah my dear, I’m so scared, I can’t bear to sail this ship on my own.
I need some sign ‘long the way,
I need someone to hold my hand
to point me where I should be goin’.”

And as he turned and walked away
she was looking at his face
she was waiting for him to stay
to turn back to the place they knew
And she looked into his eyes,
he said, “goodbye, now you’re alone
but don’t feel lonely on your own
across the sea I’ll still be near to you.”

A hundred days ‘cross the sea she was gone
she walked by herself to search for her home
she walked by herself till one day a boy caught up to her side
he held out his hand but she shook her head and just smiled (she smiled, she smiled, she smiled)

and she said, “that’s very nice
but no thank you, I’m doing fine
all alone here, doing fine
on my own here.”
And he looked into her eyes for that lonely part
but no, she wasn’t lonely,
just alone
and as he turned and walked away he wondered, “maybe I can change that way.”
