Come over to the window, my little darling
D                             A
I'd like to try to read your palm
G                                  D
I used to think I was some kind of Gypsy boy
F#m                       E.. Esus4..|E.. E7..|
Before I let you take me home

     A              F#m
Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
    E  Esus4  E  E7   E  Esus4 E    E7      A.. ...|Asus4.. ...|
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

A.. ...|Asus4.. ...|A.. ...|

Well you know that I love to live with you
But you make me forget so very much
I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget to pray for us

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

We met when we were almost young
Deep in the green lilac park
You held on to me like I was a crucifix
As we went kneeling through the dark

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

Your letters they all say that you're beside me now
Then why do I feel alone?
I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

For now I need your hidden love
I'm cold as a new razor blade
You left when I told you I was curious
I never said that I was brave

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

Oh, you are really such a pretty one
I see you've gone and changed your name again
And just when I climbed this whole mountainside
To wash my eyelids in the rain

Now so long, Marianne, it's time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again
