And aubrey was her name,And not so very ordinary girl, or name . . .But who’s to blame,For a love that wouldn’t bloom,For the hearts that never played in tune ? Like a lovely melody,That everyone can sing,Take away the words that rhyme.It doesn’t mean a thing . . . hmmmmAnd aubrey was her name,We tripped the light,And danced together to the moon,But where was june ? No, it never came around,If it did, it never made a sound . . .Maybe I was absent,Or was listening too fast,Catching all the words,But then, the meaning going past . . . hmmmmOh, how I miss the girl,And I’d go a thousand times around the world,Just to be,Closer to her, than to me.And aubrey was her name,I never knew her,But I loved her just the same,I loved her name . . .Wish that I had found a way,And the reasons that would make her stay . . .I have learned to lead a life,Apart from all the rest,If I can’t have the one I want.I’ll go without the best . . . hmmmmOh, how I miss the girl,And I’d go a million times around the world,Just to say,She had been mine for a day!
