(Noel Paul Stookey/Elaine Sutherland/Peter Yarrow)
I'd like to take you by surprise at the grocery store
Grab you by the hand and step on the electric door
Leave the shopping cart right where it is
I betcha somebody's got the same list
I wanna take us away from all this to a distant shore.
I'd leave the car by the curb with the motor on
The tape deck playin' our favorite love song
And you'd say "What in the world?"
And smile just like a little girl
And I'd say "I can't tell you now but it won't be long."
