ariel lyrics – dean friedman

way on the other side of the hudson,
deep in the bosom of suburbia,
i met a young girl, she sang mighty fine,
tears on my pillow and ave maria.
standing by the waterfall in paramus park
she was working for the friends-of-bai
she was collecting quarters in a paper cup.
she was looking for change and so was i.

she was a jewish girl. i fell in love with her.
she wrote her number on the back of my hand.
i called her up, i was all out of breath, i said,
“come hear me play in my rock and roll band.
i took a shower and i put on my best blue jeans.
i picked her up in my new vw van.
she wore a peasant blouse with nothing underneath.
i said, “hi”. she said, “yeah, i guess i am.”

we had a little time, we were real hungry.
we went to dairy queen for something to eat.
she had some onion rings. she had a pickle.
she forgot to tell me that she didn’t eat meat.
i had a gig in the american legion hall.
it was a dance for the volunteer ambulance corp.
she was sitting in a corner against the wall.
she would smile and i melted all over the floor.

i took her home with me. we watched some tv,
annette funicello and some guy going steady.
i started fooling around with the vertical hold.
we got the munchies and i made some spaghetti.
we sat and we talked into the night,
while channel 2 was signing off the air.
i found the softness of her mouth.
we made love to bombs bursting in arrrrrriel¡­.
