Sign me up i volunteer
Votes are in for lifeguard of the year
Her feline past lives are plain to see
Their similarities are shown in this life again

Like Mama said don't you let it go to your head
When you know you're being fed
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy i'll write i'll sing
Telegraph telegram telephone
Telling you i'll be home soon
Dienu

We will wake when kitty licks
And in the morn work takes her to Maine
Dressed and out the door by six
Tomorrow is the first time Liz can't board my plane

Like Mama said don't you let it go to your head
When you know you're book is read
I'm so proud to know you
Anna will take me to the port
As liz drives up I-95
Me and my darling keep love alive
Even on Texas time

And like Mama said don't you let it go to your head
When your town is painted red
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy i'll write i'll sing
Telegraph telegram telephone
Telling you i'll be home soon
Dienu

    General CommentI really enjoy this song. Its one of my favorite tracks on the album. Im not sure about Ben's Heritage but I think he may be Jewish because in this song he saids Dienu which in Hebrew means baisically God willing which would fit the context of the song. Does anyone know about this?

    General CommentBK is a genius, not to mention an adorable, friendly little dude...he was born to perform and make people happy. Lizzie is undeniably loved and valued by Ben, and it's a precious, innocent love. If only we could all find a "Lizzie" or "Ben" to write songs about or have songs written by for us, eh?
