i dreamt of you last tuesday: the oxford boys sing allison stewart

by chuck zak, the oxford boys

Track Name: i dreamt of you last tuesday...#1 (dandelion)
I dreamt of you last Tuesday
Polished loafers, leather suitcase
Wheeling down a cracked sidewalk
Cleanly shaven with a silk tie on

Fiddling with your boutonniere
Blue eyes sparkling in the mornin’s glare
Sprigs of oak leaf turned orange
Curling softly round your chin

And you’ve been
To the bottom of a wishing well
Atop a million copper pennies
Well acquainted with my dreams
Having been the object of so many

I dreamt of you in Venice
Laughing and silhouetted
Purple with perfectly freckled
Cheeks aglow and hair disheveled

Please tell me / did you find it
Fun to be / a dandelion’s
Wish for the evening last night
Please tell me are you blind e-
Nough to see burnin’ like a
Birthday candle tonight
Track Name: i dreamt of you last tuesday...#3 (a million copper pennies)
I dreamt of you last Tuesday
Polished loafers, leather suitcase
Wheeling down a cracked sidewalk
Cleanly shaven with a silk tie on

Fiddling with your boutonniere
Blue eyes sparkling in the mornin’s glare
Sprigs of oak leaf turned orange
Curling softly round your chin
And you’ve been

To the bottom of a wishing well
Atop a million copper pennies
Well acquainted with my dreams
Having been the object of so many

I dreamt of you in Venice
Laughing and silhouetted
Purple with perfectly freckled
Cheeks aglow and hair disheveled

Was if fun to be a dandelion's
Wish for the evening last night
Please tell me are you blind enough
to see it burn like a candle in the night
where you lie
Track Name: I heard she was seldom seen...#1 (easy does it)
I heard she was seldom seen as pretty
So wrapped up in shadows that, she was rarely seen at all
Frankly the rumours don’t convince me
But a moment, someone could survive such a fall

I heard that he was seldom given regard
As anything more than what he already was
Just a flirt, stifled by a sweetheart
A wandering soul, within the bonds of trust

And I heard
A stammered “Easy does it”
And the creak of a musket
In the dark
And I heard
An elephant exit
The room as he left with-
Out his heart
Track Name: I heard she was seldom seen...#2(exit the room)
I heard she was seldom seen as pretty
So wrapped up in shadows that, she was rarely seen at all
Frankly the rumours don’t convince me
But a moment, someone could survive such a fall

And I heard
A stammered “Easy does it”
And the creak of a musket
In the dark
And I heard
An elephant exit
The room as he left with-
Out his heart

I heard that he was seldom given regard
As anything more than what he already was
Just a flirt, stifled by a sweetheart
A wandering soul, within the bonds of trust
