From the recording Formerly Caroline


Formerly Caroline
She never felt so fine
Escaped the plaid in her design
Tricking the family wine

Feeling the breeze
Feeling at ease
Feeling the sun on her knees
Turning her face to the east

She's formerly yours now she's hopping the pond
Crossing over when you were so fond
She's gone
O Carrie, O Caroline

She says "O Jackie, O Jackie, O Jackie O
I've got my brother here with me where we don't have to act so proud
And O Jackie, O Jackie, O Jackie O
You know how we used to try to be perfect?
Well no one cares if I'm perfect now."
