"He came from parochial school / Wearing Mardi Gras beads in Lent / I hope he comes back tomorrow"

Mardi Gras Beads in Lent


My son Teddy here to see me

Wearing Mardi Gras beads in Lent

Knows all the secrets to free me

Or at least make the pain relent

Of having been made a fool of

As a middle-aged man by love


He is fantastically charming

He makes me feel that I am too

So kindhearted and disarming

And he loves what I write for you

We ate some apples together

I gave him some Feta cheese bread


With Teddy's help I will weather

This hollow feeling I am dead

Inside feeling like an old fool

He came from parochial school

Wearing Mardi Gras beads in Lent

I hope he comes back tomorrow


Time with Teddy is heaven-sent

An angel God lets me borrow

When I have nothing but despair

The bell rings and Teddy is there

Well you know something Steve I think that to be able to love no matter how it ends still means that you were capable of love.
