summer night
won't you take off your cotton?
rolled up and forgotten
just leave it there
on that old chair
that just sits in the corner
like that hona harmonica
you never play
I’d like to hear it some day

window sill
there's a warm wind a blowing'
some friends say they're going to that party down the road
so you start to go
you put the poem on the fridge door
but I think it means more
than you meant it to
so I read it to you

it says

may you have milk and honey
may your love be sugar and sunshine
may you be good and kind
may you be mine

our backyard
there's a porch swing forgotten
the wood is old now and rotting
the paint is peeling back
and the sky turns black
you look up above us
and you say
I still know none of the names of those
but we have milk and honey
our love is sugar and sunshine
and you have made me good and kind
just cuz you're mine

summer night
won't you take off your cotton
rolled up and forgotten
just leave it there
on that old chair
that just sits in the corner
like that hona harmonica
let's hear you play
