MACARTHUR PARK

Da, da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da

Da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da

Spring was never waiting for us, girl

It ran one step ahead as we followed in a dance.

Da, da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da

Between the parted pages we were pressed, 

In love´s hot severed iron like a striped pair of paints.

Da, da-da-da, da-da-da, da-da-da

MacArthur park is melting in the dark

All the sweet green icing flowing down flowing down!

Someone left the cake out in the rain

And I don´t think that I can take it.

´cause it took so long to bake it

And I´ll never have the recipe again.

Oh, no!

 

Instrumental break

Oh, no! Oh, no!

There will be another song for me, for I will sing it.

There will be another dream for me, someone will bring it.  

I will drink the wine while it is warm.

And never let you catch me looking in the sun.

But after all the loves of my life,

After all the loves of my life,

I´ll be thinking of you and wondering why.

MacArthur park is melting in the dark

All the sweet green icing flowing down flowing down!

Someone left the cake out in the rain

And I don´t think that I could take it

´cause it took so long to bake it

And I´ll never have the recipe again.

Oh, no! Oh, no! 

Oh, no! Oh, no!
