You Come Too

We left our trousers on the riverbank and ran
To hide behind the garden wall
But in the promise of that long hot summer
We thought the rain would never fall
Now the stars look very beautiful tonight
Behind the searchlights and the flares
I know you’re looking at that same sky somewhere
Wishing you were ‘over there’

So you come too
We two together can make the world as good as new
So come on over
We’ll march shoulder to shoulder and try to make it through
But if we change our mind
Then you go back to your island
And I’ll go back again to mine

We had your boys to visit everyone was glad
Things went better than we’d planned
Though one or two I’m sorry won’t be coming home
Still I’m sure you understand
Now from the halls of Montezuma
And on the road to Mandalay
We’ve had the best of times together
And the summer’s here again
When you come too…

I’m writing to my special friend
There’s precious little treasure in the treasury to spend
But perhaps a few surprises if you’d care to lease or lend
Would ensure a special fairy story ending in the end
If you come too…
