Emily, Emily, Emily

Has the murmuring sound of May

All silver bells, coral shells, carousels

And the laughter of children at play

 

They say "Emily, Emily, Emily"

And we fade to a marvelous view

Two lovers alone and out of sight

Seeing images in the firelight

As my eyes visualize a family

They see dreamily, Emily

 

<instrumental break>

 

Two lovers alone and out of sight

Seeing images in the firelight

As my eyes visualize a family

They see dreamily, Emily
