Roller Coaster
William J. Hall - February 25, 1981

  1 Electric Sunday evening
  2 She was standing by the sound
  3 The summer trade was leaving
  4 And the fog curled all around
  5 She said, "Darling,
  6 "You've fire in your eyes
  7 "I'll ask you no questions
  8 "You tell me no lies."
 
  9 And so the time goes
  10 Over another cup of tea
  11 She was holding out four rain-bows
  12 She was looking back at me
  13 She said, "You're groovy
  14 "You know, I think you're really fine
  15 "You really do it to me
  16 "I think I'd like to make you mine
 
  17 "I'd give you anything you want
  18 "To spend one day with you at the top
  19 "And I'd do anything you say
  20 "To stand at the top with you for a day.
  21 "Baby, don't you ever stop?
  22 "What you going to do when your time is up?
  23 "You can't slow down when you live by the clock.
  24 "Don't you think about love when the lights go out?
  25 "But love's a roller-coaster
  26 "The world's your oyster
  27 "Dance closer and closer
  28 "On the roller-coaster
  29 "Yeah."
 
  30 And then, much later on
  31 She was lying in the sand
  32 She was listening to the ocean
  33 She was looking at my hand
  34 She said, "I like the things you're doing."
  35 She said, "I like the things you do
  36 "Won't you take me where you're going
  37 "Because I'd like to go with you
 
  38 "I'd give you anything you want
  39 "To spend one day with you at the top
  40 "And I'd do anything you say
  41 "To stand at the top with you for a day.
  42 "Baby, don't you ever stop?
  43 "What you going to do when your time is up?
  44 "You can't slow down when you live by the clock.
  45 "Don't you think about love when the lights go out?
  46 "But love's a roller-coaster
  47 "The world's your oyster
  48 "Dance closer and closer
  49 "On the roller-coaster
  50 "Roller-coaster
  51 "The world's your oyster
  52 "Closer and closer
  53 "On the roller-coaster"
