"Amoreena" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
Lately I've been thinking how much I miss my lady
Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak
Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
Rolling through the hay like a puppy child

And when it rains the rain falls down
Washing out the cattle town
And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
And she dreams of crystal streams
Of days gone by when we would lean
Laughing fit to burst upon each other

I can see you sitting eating apples in the evening
The fruit juice flowing slowly, slowly, slowly
Down the bronze of your body
Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
Rolling through the hay like a puppy child

And when it rains the rain falls down
Washing out the cattle town
And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
And she dreams of crystal streams
Of days gone by when we would lean
Laughing fit to burst upon each other

Oh if only I could nestle in the cradle of your cabin
My arms around your shoulders the windows wide and open
While the swallow and the sycamore are playing in the valley
Oh I miss you Amoreena like a king bee misses honey

And when it rains the rain falls down
Washing out the cattle town
And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
And she dreams of crystal streams
Of days gone by when we would lean
Laughing fit to burst upon each other

And when it rains the rain falls down
Washing out the cattle town
And she's far away somewhere in her eiderdown
And she dreams of crystal streams
Of days gone by when we would lean
Laughing fit to burst upon each other

Lately I've been thinking how much I miss my lady
Amoreena's in the cornfield brightening the daybreak
Living like a lusty flower, running through the grass for hours
Rolling through the hay like a puppy, like a puppy child

    General CommentI love this, it's on the beginning of Dog Day Afternoon. It took me ages to realise the title and artist, though. Anyway, I think this is about lusting after a long lost female acquaintance. I know the name 'Amoreena' must have some connotations of love.

    General CommentAmoreena takes me along long straight dusty roads lined with telegraph poles to a windswept small town somewhere in middle America, It's 1970 and I'm lost, between jobs, hopeful. But I can't seem to settle down. And there's Amoreena, the girl I left behind several dry summer towns ago, I can still see her sitting in the kitchen. We used to talk and roll and hang together as the days ran away, until time came that I just moved on - cause that what I had to do.

    Oh I miss you Amoreena.
