Diary of a New Yorker

Standard

The girl upstairs from me
Moved in on a Friday at a quarter to 3
The girl upstairs from me
Introduced herself as Marie
The girl upstairs from me
Wears Levi jeans and T-shirts, stripy
The girl upstairs from me
has a cat called Rosey
The girl upstairs from me
works in a Manhattan library
The girl upstairs from me
One day, she asked me round for coffee
The girl upstairs from me
Her uncle knew Neil Diamond personally
childhood friends in Brooklyn, see
The girl upstairs from me
has the occasional wild party
where guests have to come as people from the past
Me and my pal John were Laurel and Hardy
The hostess was Marilyn Monroe – what a blast!
The girl upstairs from me
plays piano so sweetly
One day before it got dark
we went roller bladin’ in Central Park
For her 30th birthday, I took her to Macy’s
I bought her a trumpet and a book on Spencer Tracy
The girl upstairs from me
occupies my thoughts daily
The fun things we’ve done together
have taken up 50 pages of my diary
The girl upstairs from me…
is absolutely lovely
One day I’m gonna ask her to marry me
If she says yes, then she’ll no longer be
The girl upstairs from me
We’ll move out of this apartment building
and buy a place in the country
I’ll have finished my law degree
will support her and a family…and I’ll be oh so happy
