"Loretta Young" as written by and Campbell....
Loretta you're young
Loretta you'll learn
When someone takes you and loves you
And loves you
For I was young too
With trouble like you
It hurts when you throw love away

Leave history for widows
Wipe his story from windows
Leave history for widows
And learn to live again

This old dusty house
With it's dark, dampened past
Your heart is broken
So broken
With a broom from the wall
Sweep it away
We're not sinless or stainless
He'll arrange this

Come down from your frozen ivory tower
It hurts when you give love away
But you'll get it right someday
Loretta you're young
Loretta you'll learn
When someone takes you and loves you
And loves you...

    General CommentLoretta Young was an actress from the 1930's who got pregnant by a married guy. I don't know if the gentle waves are doing a cover here. The song I guess is about the situation Loretta Young was in... she had to cover up her pregnancy and pretend it didn't happen.
