Lyrics Scarlet Begonias

As I was walking 'round
Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the winter but a nip to the air
From the other direction she was calling my eye
It could be an illusion but I might as well try
Might as well try
She had rings on her fingers and bells on her shoes
And I knew without asking she was into the blues
She wore scarlet begonias
Tucked into her curls
I knew right away
She was not like other girls
Other girls
In the thick of the evening
When the dealing got rough
She was too pat to open and too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and was closing the door
I had one of those flashes
I'd been there before
Been there before
Well I ain't often right but I've never been wrong
It seldom turns out the way it does in the song
Once in a while
You get shown the light in the strangest of places
If you look at it right
Well there ain't nothing wrong with the way she moves
Or scarlet begonias
Or a touch of the blues
And there's nothing wrong with the look that's in her eye
I had to learn the hard way to let her pass by
Let her pass by
The wind in the willows played tea for two
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue
Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand
Everybody's playing in the Heart of Gold Band
Heart of Gold Band
Ah ah ah
Ha ha ah ah ah ah ah
Ooh ooh hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo
Hoo ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah ha ah
Ha ah ah ah oh ho
Ah ah ah ah ah ah la la la la
Oh ho ho ho oh oh ho
