Macarthur Park Lyrics

Spring was never waiting for us, girl,
It ran one step ahead,
As we followed in the dance.
Between the parted pages and were pressed,
In love's hot, fevered iron,
Like a striped pair of pants.

I recall the yellow cotton dress,
It was foaming like a wave,
On the ground around your knees.
The birds, like tender babies in your hands,
And the old men playing checkers,
By the trees.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark,
All the sweet, green icing flowing down.
Oh, someone left the cake out in the rain,
And I don't think that I can take it,
'Cause it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again.
Oh, no! Oh, no.

There will be another song for me,
For I will sing it.
There will be another dream for me,
Oh, someone will bring it.
I will drink the wine while it is warm,
And never let you catch me looking at the sun.
And after all the loves of my life,
After all the loves of my life,
You'll still be the one, little girl.

I will take my life into my hands,
I will use it.
I will win the worship in their eyes,
Oh, and I will lose it.
I will have the things that I desire,
And my passion flow like,
Rivers through the skies.
After all the loves of my life,
After all the loves of my...
I'll be thinking of you,
And wondering why.

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark,
All the sweet, green icing flowing down.
Oh, someone left the cake out in the rain,
And I don't think that I can take it,
'Cause it took so long to bake it,
And I'll never have that recipe again.
Oh, no! Oh, no.
Noooo!
