lyrics

Do you still live on Magnolia Lane?
Or have the lizards all run away
They used to scurry up your red brick wall
Drenched in the island sun
It was a sticky sweet and sultry summer
Striped shrimp boats went sliding on by
They used to haul their catch from the ocean floor
Fisherman sleep by the seagull's cry
And I don't know Mary
But if I did
I'd tell her take a right at the light to the door
She'd come out of that car
Wearing a dress
That I swear I'd seen before
Well that beach frosted over
For the first time in fifty years
The wood of the shrimp boats rotted and peeled
They tried to cast their nets to bring home dinner
But all they dragged up was sand and shells and fear
So do you still live on Magnolia Lane?
Or have the roosters gone quiet for good
And is Mary standing with a smile on her face
In the spot where Magnolia once stood
And I don't know Mary
But if I did
I'd tell her take a left at the light to the shore
And drive her car
Straight into the surf
In those rags she always wore
