Lyrics copied from

Words and Music by P. Farrell

1. Say, weeping green willow, will you tell me why
On the spur of the moment, when I said goodbye,
I saw her walking away out of sight,
Now I regretfully think of my wife?

CHORUS: Willow, green willow, as your branches hang low,
You seem to be sighing for the sadness I know.
I'll love her forever, 'till the day that I die,
Until the green willow looks up to the sky.

2. All around the city the daytime seems dark
As I watch all the couples walk down through the park.
Missed opportunities never come twice.
Darling, I'm longing. I'm paying the price.

3. Today was tomorrow just yesterday.
Time goes so slowly now she's gone away.
Time must go on, though my heart feels the pain.
Perhaps someday soon, she will come back again.
