The Hollies - Dear Eloise
Tekst en muziek: Graham Nash, Allan Clarke en Tony Hicks
(1967)






Dear Eloise, I am writing to say
A number of funny things I heard today
I heard that he’s left you and run off to sea
Could be the best thing that’s happened to me



Two, three, four
Writing a letter
To make you feel better
Sorry to hear that he left you that way
I could have told you
He was much older
So much older than you



You rushed in blindly
He treated you kindly
Until he found out what he could get from you
You should have departed
Before he got started
Now you’ve been burned just like I said you would



Please, read my letter closely
It’s beneficial too
You must read in-between the lines
A message you will see
If you use your mind
You’ll find
I want you back with me



Writing a letter
To make you feel better
Sorry to hear that he left you that way
I could have told you
He was much older
So much older than you
So much older than you
So much older than you



Dear Eloise, I am writing to say
A number of funny things I heard today
I heard that he’s left you and run off to sea
Could be the best thing that’s happened to me
