I look out my window, watch her as she passes by
I say to myself I'm such a lucky guy
To have a girl like her is a dream come true

And of all the girls in New York she loves me true

But I tell you

It was just my imagination once again
Running away with me
It was just my imagination
Running away with me

Soon we'll be married and raise a family
Two boys for you, what about two girls for me?
I tell you I'm just a fellow with a one track mind
Whatever it is I want, baby, I seek and I shall find

Every night I hope and pray, "Dear lord, hear my plea
Don't ever let another take her love from me or I will surely die"
Her love is ecstasy, when her arms enfold me, I hear a tender rhapsody
But in reality, she doesn't even know me

Run away... run run run...
