This boy and this girl
Walk along this leaf filled street
(arm in arm)
High on love and life and laughter,
High on together,
Young and carefree,
In the heat of a summer night.
And she is beautiful
And he is handsome,
In suit and tie,
And her in a pretty summer dress,
And that was us,
So many years ago.
The green leaves have dried and turned
So many times since then,
Yet still, here we are,
Hand in hand,
And still I thrill to your soft touch,
As your fingers entwine with mine
On Rue Morgue Avenue.
