Laurie, Laurie, lay your locks down low,

(and smother me with cream soda kisses).

Let us skip away the day, wearing only an August sunset, and dance on the Lilly pads.

We’ll make love to the harvest moon,

for life, is beautiful.


Laurie, Laurie, gather seeds to sow,

(and get me drunk with amaretto kisses).

Let us build a bonfire that burns deep, and scream each other's name into the night.

We’ll hold each other close, keeping the frost at bay,

for life, is soon dormant.


Laurie, Laurie, let the blizzards blow,

(and warm my soul with hot cocoa kisses).

Let us cuddle ‘neath eternal embers of laughter and sharing, and melt, indivisibly, into one.

We’ll connect like snowflakes, so unique, yet so the same,

for life, is magical.


Laurie, Laurie, make the flowers grow,

(and quench my heart with spring rain kisses).

Let us lay down in beds of grass, and make the thunder, for April showers.

We’ll play like children in the dandelion fields,

for life, is new again.


Laurie, Laurie, lay your locks down low,

(and smother me with cream soda kisses).

Let us dance away the years, and laugh through the pains.

We’ll cry each other's name deep into the night, forever,

for life, is joined with you.
