Peter, Paul & Mary – By Surprise lyrics

I'd like to take you by surprise at the grocery store
Grab you by the hand and step on the electric door
Leave the shopping cart right where it is
I betcha somebody's got the same list
I wanna take us away from all this to a distant shore.

I'd leave the car by the curb with the motor on
The tape deck playin' our favorite love song
And you'd say "What in the world?"
And smile just like a little girl
And I'd say "I can't tell you now but it won't be long."

Chorus:
I know it sounds funny, but it's true...
I get so busy I forget I'm in love with you
And every now and then we need to get away to get close again.

Up in the air in a window seat
Your head on my shoulder and a blanket around our feet
We could leave the kids at home
And if you get worried we could telephone
We need a weekend of fun for under two hundred dollars complete.

(Chorus)

There we would be in a sunny land
We'd lie on the beach and you could wiggle your toes in the sand
A tropical drink late at night
And a midnight dip if the temperature's right
The best things turn out better if they never were planned.

(Chorus)
