Tired Of Me
The Skyliners Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I met her when I was in Spain
It was a warm and breezy day
She was a doin' it there Lorraine
A dancin' in Cabaret
I couldn't take my eyes away
Her magic I just couldn't explain
All that I knew was that I must stay
Until I met the girl Lorraine

With just one wink, I met her
I loved her and I lost her just as fast
Still know I'll never forget her
Even though I'm just out of her class
So, if you should come into her show
At that small cabaret in Spain
A you will find me and many more
A just a waitin' here for our Lorraine

Even though I'm just out of her class

So if you should come into her show
At that small cabaret in Spain
Well, you will find me and many, many more
A just a waiting here for our Lorraine
Just a waiting here for our Lorraine
Mmmm, mmmm




Aah, Aah, Aah
