Fleetwoods – Man In A Raincoat lyrics

Late in the evening, out in the square
A man in a raincoat, standing there
We met by the lamp where the newsboy cries
He stole my heart with his laughing eyes

He smiled as we climbed on the old street-car
I blushed when he asked, "Are you traveling far?"
The next time we met the sun shone all day
We walked and we talked till the evening was grey

He took me dancing, dancing till dawn
No happier couple had ever born
I felt like a queen and he was my king
He borrowed some money to buy me a ring

But I'm still alone, the cards are all down
He's taken my money and skipped out of town
And now when I pass the place where we met
I'm wondering if I can't forgive and forget

Though hurt is my heart and foolishly proud
I still keep on searching when out in a crowd
For a man in raincoat, standing there
With laughing eyes and dark brown hair
