(sung by the tramp)Once under a scarlet sky I told you never ending lies,But they were the words of a drunken vagabondWho knew very well he would break your heart before longOh forgive me genevieve.Now I’ve come back to see sweet lady genevieve,This time I’ll give you some securityAnd I will make promises I can keepSo will you come back to me sweet lady genevieve.Let me rock you, hold you,Take you in my arms.Forgive me, please,Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.Oh if you come back to me sweet lady genevieve,I’m not the impetuous fool you used to knowI know that I used you and I hurt you so,But that was so long ago sweet lady genevieve.Oh, love me,Take me in your arms.Let me rock you, hold you,Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me.Once under a starry sky I led you on and told you liesDrank too much whiskey on that hot summer night.I acted so slyly because you were acting so shy,Oh forgive me genevieve.If you come back to me sweet lady genevieve,You’re not the child who smiled so innocentlyAnd I’m not the rogue that I used to be,So will you come back to me sweet lady genevieve.Oh genevieve, oh genevieve.
