Tim Buckley – Hi Lily Hi Lo lyrics

If you're ever in New York...(Is it a girl?)
If you're ever in New York, there's not very
Many carnivals going on
And that may not be much, but uh...
If you're used to a carnival every once in a while
Then New York doesn't have it
Then you gotta write a carnival song
But that don't really make it either
'Cause what's a song without a carnival?

The song of love is a sad song
For we have loved and it's so
So come and laugh a while Lily
Come and join the show
Hi lily lily hi
Lo lily lily hi
Lo lily lily hi lo

The circus comes once a year, Lily
Then we gotta go
So come and laugh a while Lily
Come and join the show
Come dancin', dancin' dance a while
Come dancin', dancin' dance a while
Come dancin', dancin' dance a while with me

Me me me me me me me...

More? See the people pass Lily
Don't mind what they say
Go on and be happy Lily
They'll just pass away
Hi lily lily hi
Lo lily lily hi
Lo lily lily hi lo

Don't let the Italian kids on your block make fun, Lily

(The) song of love is a sad song
We have loved and it's so
So come and laugh a while Lily
Come and join the show

Hi lily hi lily
Hi lily lo
