Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

One day she passed him by
A twinkle in her eye
He said " she was meant for me!"
But when he turned around
He lost what he had found
Oh where can his Lilly be?

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

He searched the city streets
He tempted her with treats
But nobody stopped to taste them
Some are in his pocket
Some are in a locket
He couldn't bring himself to waste them

Ever since she's gone
Some days he can't go on
She runined for another
Pressed up against the glass
He prays that she will pass
Now he's living with his mother

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Lilly comes when you stop to call her
Lilly runs when you look away
Lilly leaves kisses on your collar
Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, Lilly, stay!

Stay, stay, stay, stay

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a dog who ran away, and he's looking for her. Very sad, but a beautiful song.

    General CommentThis is my dog's song! Her formal name was originally Lilly, and we would play this song for her all the time, because my mom found this song just after we'd named her. We don't call her Lilly, but we play it for her, she'll still howl to it! lol

    General Commentok honestly

    how stupid do you have to be to not get that this song is about a dog?
    the guys has dog treats in his pocket for christs sake.

    some people are so dense.

    General CommentI always thought it was about a foolish girl, she's not really mean, it's just that she loves having fun and doesn't care about anything much. It could be about a dog, but why would a guy come back to live with his mother just because he's lost his dog? That would be too much, wouldn't it? Or, maybe the songwriter made it ambiguous on purpose.

    General CommentMy thoughts exactly. How could anyone not know this is about a dog he saw on the street. He wanted to take her home/make her his dog and tempted her with treats - but she never came back. so he kept searching the streets in his loneliness.

    General CommentThis song makes me want to dance :)
    As to it's meaning - I think the main bullet point would be "lilly's a mean chick :)"
