Jens Lekman – Tammy lyrics

I hear the cottonwoods
Whispering above
Tammy! Tammy!
Tammy's in love!

The ole hootie owl
Hootie-hoo's to the dove
Tammy! Tammy!
Tammy's in love!

Does my lover feel
What I feel
When he comes near?
My heart beats so joyfully
You would think that he could hear!

Wish I knew
If he knew
What I'm dreaming of!
Tammy! Tammy!
Tammy's in love!

You and I know
Tammy! Tammy!
Can't let him go!

The breeze from the bayou
Keeps murmuring low
Tammy! Tammy!
Tammy's in love!

When the night is warm,
Soft and warm
I long for his charms!
I'd sing like a violin
If I were in his arms

Wish I knew
If he knew
What I'm dreaming of!
Tammy, Tammy,
Tammy's in love!

Oh Tammy, Tammy,
Tammy's in love.
