My lilac girl, oh

Only you can turn my eloquence to banality
Only you can make importancies into trivialities
Only you can cure dismality
Only you can make me swoon

My lilac girl, oh
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la lilac girl oh ooh oh
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la lilac girl

She brushes her hair
She climbs down the stairs
Suddenly she's aware that she's beautiful
She looks so delicious
As she's washing the dishes
Suddenly she wishes just like all the fishes in the sea
That she was with me
She was with me, oh ooh oh

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la lilac girl oh ooh oh
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Well I may lie like a rug
But I mean when I say that I wanna lie down next to you
I may lie like a rug
But I mean when I say it's a lilac girl

Only you can turn my eloquence to banality
Only you can make importancies into trivialities
Only you can cure dismality
Only you can make me swoon

My lilac girl, oh ooh oh
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la lilac girl oh ooh oh
(only you can make me swoon)
La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la lilac girl oh ooh oh
