Band Marino – Arlee Hayes lyrics

There's a young man that's stationed in Macedonia.
A young woman sits beside a telephone.
She's so far away, but he's thinking of her
And each day he steps further into his world.

There's a bottle of tequila and a bottle of gin,
There's a girl calling to me sayin' come right in.
I said "No I can't lady not today,
There's a young lady waiting for me miles, miles away"

My name is Arlee Hayes, I got on the boat today.
I left my love behind, in search of my own, own decay

Arlee Bill Hayes is a-goin' to war.
He watches as he's runnin' that ship ashore.
He's breakin' his heart but he's crying for more.
La da da da da, as he watches his lady,
Walkin' out the door.

"Well this Arlee Bill Hayes was a sad character, and as he entered the
Cape of Good Hope he didn't notice the lighthouse as it warned him of impending doom. "

Can you feel the air? (can you feel the sea)
As it comes for meeeee?
Could this be the end? (could this be the beast)
Comin' to take poor Arlee.?
Hey hey Hayes, it's not to late.

Take a chance, there's a lady not too far away.
Take her in your arms and tell her that you'll never leave, Arlee.
She's the one, and all the others aren't oh can't you see, Arlee.
She's the one for meeeeee.

Arlee Bill Hayes is a-goin' to war.
He watches as he's runnin' that ship ashore.
He's breakin' his heart but he's crying for more,
La da da da da, as he watches his lady,
Walkin' out the door.

Can you feel the air? (can you feel the sea)
As it comes for meeeee?
Could this be the end? (could this be the beast)
Comin' to take, poor Arlee.?
Hey hey Hayes, it's not to late Arlee Hayes, Hey hey Hayes, you can be saved.

He's a swimmin' ashore. He's a swimmin ashore.

Don't throw it all away, there's a young girl waiting for ya' miles away.
Don't through it all away Arlee.
Don't through it all away, there's a phone-call waiting for you miles away.
Don't through it all away Arlee.
Muchacho
