Juan P-B Lyr Req: Naomi (Ralph McTell) (11) Lyr Add: NAOMI (Ralph McTell) 20 Nov 04


The Present Mrs P-B's fave song!
Naomi

Age has made her frail. I'm scared to take her in my arms.
There's an understanding now – A peace behind the eyes.
Age is for complaining, but you won't hear much from me
Growing old with Naomi

Now I recall the first time I held her in my arms
And times I was unfaithful…..she said "There's no future in the past"
So we don't talk about it – She keeps a gentle edge on me
And I don't mind. Growing old with Naomi

She wasn't all I wanted but she's all I'll ever need
A rich man always wants more – and I was rich indeed!
A rich man and a poor fool – yet it turned out right for me
How lucky can you get! Growing old with Naomi

The kids today! They think that they discovered everything
Well, me & her, we've done it all without a wedding ring
And sometimes things remind us and she's smiling back at me
It ain't hard, growing old with Naomi

She wasn't all I wanted but she's all I'll ever need
A rich man and a poor fool – and I was rich indeed!
I never thought her beautiful…..but I do now! 'cause I see
I'm getting wiser! Growing old with Naomi

Well the place is kind of quiet now the kids have all left home
We'd like to see more of them, when they're gone
And in the quietness afterwards, she comes and sits by me
And makes me feel like a man – Growing old with Naomi

And makes me feel like a man – Growing old with Naomi
