lyrics

POLyAmOrOUs PolLy AnN
by David Tiller

When I was 23 years old,
I was ready to win the world,
I swore off the distractions of love,
For my art I took an oath

Then she came into the party,
On the arm of an old old friend,
With a smile as grand as the canyon,
And eyes that could not pretend

I went weak in the knees,
Maybe weaker in the mind,
I could not look away from her,
I could not leave her behind

So I stole her away into the night,
And onto Avignon,
We busked the streets of Paris,
And made love unto the dawn

Oh Polly Ann,
Like heated honey in my hands,
Drips through my fingers into the sands
Oh Polly Ann,
Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again,
My polyamorous Polly Ann

And when I was ready to propose,
Another would be on his knee,
Not a lad could look away from her,
Nor could she refuse to please

She said don't wait up for me man,
this could take a while,
But I'll be back as sure as I am
Bearing your first child

Oh Polly Ann,
Like heated honey in my hands,
Drips through my fingers into the sands
Oh Polly Ann,
Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again,
My polyamorous Polly Ann

She was as delicate as a Lily,
And innocent as a child,
She'd follow her heart to the ends of the earth
If a gentleman was beguiled

And when she returned to me,
My child was already 10,
she had three others on her back,
Each one from a different friend

Oh, Polly Ann
I can't deny my pain,
Each time you walk out that door again,
Oh Polly Ann,
Like heated honey in my hands,
Drips through my fingers into the sands
Oh Polly Ann,
Those who want to hold her down will not hold her again,
My polyamorous Polly Ann
My polyamorous Polly Ann
My polyamorous Polly Ann
