Our Bonnie Song

The other day i walked with my bonnie
laughing and crying we stayed
she jabbed me, i jabbed her
and we both said

Bring back, bring back
oh, bring back my bonnie to me

The other night we danced together
and shared the same cigarette
and the wine, over and over
and we said

Bring back, bring back
oh, bring back my bonnie to me

We looked at tall buildings
the funny men with pointed hats
we made jokes only we understood
silently listened to a tired guy say

Bring back, bring back
oh, bring back my bonnie to me

I rode the train to the city
she rode the train to the village
we met friends who were all singing
the strange song that kept saying

Bring back, bring back
oh, bring back my bonnie to me

The park dogs bark in the background
some girl pretends to be a crow
all of the sounds, all of nature
start throbbing in the background, saying

Bring back, bring back
bring back my bonnie to me

The bonnie says shhhh, and stops
my voice comes to life on its own
out comes a sound i never heard
but what i meant to say was

Bring back, bring back
bring back my bonnie to me

My bonnie lies right next to me
but i still cry, and look back
and keep on singing to myself
to sleep, saying

Bring back, bring back
oh bring back my bonnie to me

If you do find my bonnie lost in her ways
and if you do find me lost in mine,
send us back to where we began
so we may never have to sing

Bring back, bring back
bring back my bonnie to me.
