Try to impress
Every last
Detail of the scene
Into long-term memory.

Like the glint
Of the Palisades
Across the Tappan Zee.

Could you imagine ourselves here
In this bedroom community?

La-da, da-da,
La-da, da-da-da
Ahhhhh....

La-da, da-da,
La-da, da-da-da
Ahhhhh....

A canopy
Of elm trees
And exploding peonies.
Mail order homes
Circa 1923.

I didn't mean to say "we". (la-la-la-la, la-da)
I was speaking
Abstractively.

I just meant you (la-da-la-la, la-da)
With whoever
You'll eventually be.

I could point out
Where New York meets New Jersey.

I could identify
Some of the more
Common weeds.

But I've let slip
Too many details
Already.
