After half your life spent in the breadlines Watching the world turn In a dress of red polyester So many important things to learn Like never to be in a hurry Time is what you make it And if you get a chance to travel You'd be a fool not to take it And that's how I met you Like a bird out of her nest Five thousand miles from your homeland The jewel of Bucharest Yes, it's such a long way From your father's factory To the lonely strip malls And a foreign university And that's how I found you So far across the sea Making sense out of the madness With your wistful poetry And it's such a pleasure To have your head upon my chest My sweet Latin lover The jewel of Bucharest Outside in New Haven The wind it blows so cold Inside the smell of cabbage Is like a story seldom told For the comfort of this bed And the blanket that you made No treasure trove of platinum Would be rich enough to trade Ah, there might be many ways To have my soul caressed But please grant me one more evening With the jewel of Bucharest ---- Created February, 2001 Copyright David Rovics 2001, all rights reserved
