Frank Zappa – Memories Of El Monte (1962) lyrics

Performed by: The Penguins

I'm all alone.
Feeling so blue.
Thinking about you
And the love we once knew.
And each time I do,
It brings back those memories
Of El Monte.

Remember the dance.
I held you so tight.
The Satins were singing
In the still of the night.
You gave me your heart
And your love undying.
Now I'm alone...
I'm sitting here crying.

If only they had
Those dances again,
I'd know where to find you,
And all my old friends.
The Shields would sing...
"You cheated. You lied..."
And the Heartbeats...
"You're a thousand miles away..."
And the Medaillons with "The Letter" and...
"Sweet words of his mortality..."
Marvin and Johnny with...
"Cherry Pie..."
And then, Tony Allen with...
"Night owl..."
And I, Cleve Duncan, along with the Penguins,
Will sing...
"Earth angel
Earth Angel
Will you be mine? "
At El Monte.

If I could go back
To those days of the past,
I'd show you a love...
A love that would last.
Oh, I remember
Those wonderful dances
In El Monte.
In El Monte.
"Earth angel
Earth Angel
Will you be mine? "
At El Monte
