I like you
And you like him
And he likes me
And we all love each other
We like to sit in the cafe
And eat and drink and talk all day
And watch the sun
We like to read the newspaper
And talk about him and her
And who is getting along with who these days
And when the sun goes down
We walk along the cobblestone ground

He loves the city
With the bricks and broken bottles
And the pretty little flowers
As they grow against the wall
He is dark
He is tall
He is the tallest one of all
Of us
You are bright and quick and fair
And seems that you have lost some hair
But this is all right
This is ok. we do not mind
We write and fight and sing
And this is fine

We drink the wine
If we get it free
And if he buys you a coffee
He can surely buy some for me
And one day we will work real hard
And get a job


And not just sit here
Writing letters
On this silly boulevard
And everyone will know our name
And we'll be rich
Or we'll at least
Have some kind of fame
We'll be brave
We'll be bold
We'll come riding through
Like knights of old

The sun is like
A lover's hand
As it comes down
And touches you
Touches me
Touches him
Touches you
And we have all got dirty feet
From wearing sandals in the street
And we should all go home
But still you will
Insist insist
Until each last one has been kissed
And each one is happy
And when the sun goes down
We walk along the cobblestone ground
This is ok. we do not mind
We write and fight and sing
And this is fine

(1981)
