Daryl Hall & John Oates – Thank You For... lyrics

Thank you for walking
Thank you for spending one day,
With a stranger

Good morning. Hello! Choose a color, carnation
Well walk along.

Down round the pond, up the hill bricks and steeples
Its not all gone... I recall

Thank you for walking
Thank you for spending one day,
With a stranger

Thank you for talking
And showing the way to a stranger

Wining and dining (what a september)
From bags by the river (I shouldve worn a sweater)
A sun, sail, song (its cooler up here)

We sat on a wall (oh my)
Rest our feet (just a little longer)
Touch our noses

Then slow poke on... Oh, I recall

One red carnation
The color for april
And apples
And wine

I suppose it was white... But I needed the rhyme.

As I packed up to leave oh, I noticed the fountain,
The statues hand.

There in her bronzed, moistened, palm
Red carnation
Without you there... I recall
