I wanna live with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy the rest of my life
With a cinnamon girl.

A dreamer of pictures I run in the night
You see us together, chasing the moonlight,
My cinnamon girl.

Ten silver saxes, a bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes and waits between shows
For his cinnamon girl.

A dreamer of pictures I run in the night
You see us together, chasing the moonlight,
My cinnamon girl.

Pa sent me money now
I'm gonna make it somehow
I need another chance
You see your baby loves to dance
Yeah...yeah...yeah.

    General CommentWell,I like cinnamon and girls so I really can't help but like this song. Now if is was called chamomile or coriandor girl, I think I and many others may have had some serious issues with this song. So he definitely got his herb right (btw as a side note Simon and Garfunkle made good choices as well with Sage, Rosemary and Thyme in Scarborough Fair- those 60's groups really knew their herbs!) Oh, and this song has a killer riff too.

    General CommentSomeone suggested that this song would fit with my dysfunctional relationship with my father. A local band is opening with this "in honor" of me. I have read all the postings, and still don't really get it. I am a blonde with a firey spirit. Very determined to make it on my own, sometimes to the dismay of my loving husband. I do have a distant relation to the Native Americans. ( I can read trees, I work with animals, and believe we are on this planet to take care of each other when karma brings things our way). Any input would be greatly appreciated. By the way, to say "dysfunctional" is putting it lightly. Just imagine the worst thing a father can do to his daughter.

    General CommentWhy do I have this idea that this song is related to the one the Rolling Stones sing? That one about brown sugar.
