Glad We Got Away

Sure we miss the hustle and the bustle
But I guess the two of us’ll have to cope
And I have hope
High, high hope
That you and I can conquer this dismay
Sure we miss the taxis and the traffic
And the sirens and the people
The millions of people
The way we miss a headache
When the headache goes away
Red sky over Cape Cod Bay
A couple of gin and tonics
At the end of day
Nothing much to talk about
And that’s okay
Glad we got away
Fresh catch with a white bordeaux
And later we’ll go dancing
At a place I know
Everybody’s hurrying
So we’ll go slow
Glad we got away
Away, got away from the city
Away, got away with you
And hey, you’ve got a way
Of looking so pretty
It’s a pity
We can only stay a day or two
Blue moon through the cool night air
The way the light is playing
On your black-brown hair
Sometimes with the craziness
It gets to where
You’ve got to get away
Hey, babe, glad we got away
