Betty's Lover
William J. Hall - August 23, 1993

  1 Days go by...
  2 Dreams turn to promises,
  3 "We don't mind,"
  4 So Betty's lover says -
  5 While we laugh in the pouring rain...
  6 And I see Betty's lover smile
  7 Dreamy-eyed in the fire light.
  8 She's holding Betty close a while.
  9 She's been wishing on the stars
  10 Circling that purple sea
  11 While I'm playing my guitar
  12 For Betty, betty's lover, and me.
 
  13 New York Times
  14 Book Review comes Sunday...
  15 White with black lines
  16 Now Betty's dreams have gone
  17 Best sellers
  18 We still dance in the pouring rain... oh, oh
  19 And I see Betty's lover smile
  20 Dreamy-eyed in the fire-light.
  21 She's holding Betty close a while.
  22 I'm singing them to sleep tonight.
  23 She's been wishing on the stars
  24 Circling that purple sea
  25 While I'm strumming my guitar
  26 For Betty, Betty's lover, and me.
