Rebecca, Rebecca
(From the album BOY)
Rebecca, Rebecca
Won’t you let down your hair
I’m tired and tethered and lonely
The night is but young
Though my heart has begun
To yearn for you and you only
Outside the weather is cold
And I know that you’re young and I’m old
But Rebecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, Rebecca
Youthful beauty so fair
I long to see you sway to the music
I’ll give you my heart
Like I’ve given you my soul
Though I know that you’ll only abuse it
But this drink’s got the best of me now
And I know you don’t care anyhow
But Rebecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, Rebecca
I’ve no money to spare
I’m toothless, bedraggled and weary
I’m penniless old, and crippled and cold
But there’s no need for you to fear me
I’ve travelled this world all my life
All I want is a kiss not a wife
And Rebbecca I will love you till I die

Rebecca, the stars are on fire
And I’m floating on wings of desire
I’m far, far above the pier and the town
I look like a beggar and I walk like a clown
I’m half way to heaven don’t let me back down

Rebecca, Rebecca won’t you let down your hair
The bell’s gone and everyone’s leaving
In a world full of darkness and death and despair
You’ve a light for me to believe in
So kiss me cheek once goodbye
Or at least wipe this tear from my eye
And Rebecca I will love you till I die
