lyrics

They met in a park at the end of their lives,
she had a husband and he had a wife.
They were working for the city just to get out of the house
picking up the garbage that the children had thrown out.
And he said:

I just want her to sing with me,
to hear our voices in harmony
She's shy to start, but in this park
her voice is like a bird, and my mind goes with it
into the clouds and the trees bum bum bum bum bum bum

Well she was sometimes lonely, cause her husband wasn't well
and both of their children were to busy to call
but it's simpler than all that he said, you know
one of these days we'll both be dead... Oh

I just want her to sing with me,
to hear our voices in harmony
She's shy to start, but in this park
her voice is like a bird, and my mind goes with it
into the clouds and the trees bum bum bum bum bum bum

They boasted of their children they knew only from afar
Her son was a doctor, his daughter just passed the bar
Then he told me his secret, just like a little child
It's the hope that makes me come here every day.... Oh

I just want her to sing with me,
to hear our voices in harmony
She's shy to start, but in this park
her voice is like a bird, and my mind goes with it
into the clouds and the trees bum bum bum bum bum bum
