Neil Diamond - Longfellow serenade
Tekst en muziek: Neil Diamond
(1974)







Longfellow serenade
Such were the plans I’d made
For she was a lady
And I was a dreamer
With only words to trade



You know that I was born
For a night like this
Warmed by a stolen kiss
For I was lonely
And she was lonely



Ride, come on baby, ride
Let me make your dreams come true
I’ll sing my song
Let me sing my song
Let me make it warm for you



I’ll weave this web of rhyme
Upon the summer night
We’ll leave this worldly time
On his winged flight



Then come and as we lay
Beside this sleepy glade
There I will sing to you
My Longfellow serenade



Longfellow serenade
Such were the plans I’ve made
But she was a lady
As deep as the river
And through the night we stayed



And in my way I loved her as none before
Loved her with words and more
For she was lonely
And I was lonely



Ride, come on baby, ride
Let me make your dreams come true
I’ll sing my song
Let me sing my song
Let me make it warm for you



I’ll weave this web of rhyme
Upon the summer night
We’ll leave this worldly time
On his winged flight



Then come and as we lay
Beside this sleepy glade
There I will sing to you
My Longfellow serenade



Weave your web of rhyme
Upon our summer night
We’ll leave this worldly time
On your winged flight
Then come and as we lay
Beside this sleepy glade
