Emily

This song is by Fool's Garden and appears on the album Go And Ask Peggy For The Principal Thing (1997).

Emily's going out tonight
With a candle in her pocket and
A lighter in her right hand.
Does anybody know
Why she's gonna go?
She's nearly out of sight.
Emily's out tonight.

So familiar,
How ladylike the old girl comes along.
She's ninety something,
Dressed up and wide awake.
A little slow, but going strong.
She's paid off the overdraft
For the TV she has bought in '84.
She's been paying all her lifetime,
But now she's gonna pay no more.

Deep religious,
She went to mass on every Sunday morning.
She's believing
In God but she don't like
The priest (he's new in town, and very boring).
She's listened to his sermon well
Though she's heard the same one hundred times before.
She's heard them all her lifetime,
But now she's gonna listen anymore.

She's gonna do it today, she's going make it today
She's gonna do it, gonna do it, gonna do it.

Emily's going out tonight
With a candle in her pocket and
A lighter in her right hand.
Does anybody know
Why she's gonna go away?
She's gonna make it today.

She's very friendly,
An open minded and always understanding.
Bad behavior
She doesn't like at all.
She's very modest, she's never been demanding.
She's always followed every rule,
Though she didn't even know what they've been for.
She has followed all her lifetime,
But now she's gonna follow anymore.

She's gonna do it today, she's gonna make it today
She's gonna do it, gonna do it, gonna do it right now.
She's going make the world go round (and round and round...)
She's gonna make it today...
She's gonna do it, gonna do it, gonna do it.

Emily's going out tonight
With a candle in her pocket and
A lighter in her right hand.
Does anybody know
Why she's gonna go away?

Emily's going out tonight
With a candle in her pocket and
A lighter in her right hand.
Does anybody know,
Where she's gonna go today?
She's gonna go away, she's gonna go today.

Emily's going out tonight
With a candle in her pocket and
A lighter in her right hand.
Does anybody know
Where she's gonna go?
Se's nearly out of sight.
Emily's out tonight...
