Ooo
Each day through my window I watch her as she passes by.
I say to myself, you're such a lucky guy.
To have a girl like her is truly a dream come true.
Out of all the fellas in the world, she belongs to me.

But it was just my 'magination, running away with me.
It was just my 'magination, running away with me.

(Soon) Soon we'll be married and raise a family. (Oh, yeah)
A cozy little home out in the country with two children, maybe three.
I tell you, I can visualize it all. This couldn't be a dream, for too real it all seems.

But it was just my 'magination, once again.
Running away with me.
Tell you it was just my 'magination,
Running away with me.

Paul: Every night on my knees I pray.

Dear Lord, hear my plea.
Don't ever let another take her love from me.
Or I will surely die. Hmm

(Her love is) heavenly.
When her arms enfold me.
I hear a tender rhapsody.
But in reality, she doesn't even know me.

Just my 'magination, once again.
Running away with me.
Oh, tell you it was just my 'magination,
Running away with me.

I never met her but I can't forget her.
Just my 'magination,
Ooo yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Running away with me.

Ooo, just my 'magination running away with me.
She's in my mind and hard to find.
Just my 'magination...

    Great song to sing along with, especially the trombones playing in the background.

    I even sang it during my lunch break and i could do the beginning part with my mouth mimicking the trombone.

    Am i the only one who finds the lyrics to this song to be kinda creepy? Some random dude is spending every day imagining being married and having a specific number of kids with a woman he's never even met...

    Great song. I can even do the trombone sound with my mouth.

    I sound like a real trombone now.

    Great vibe. So beautiful.
