WAITING IN LOVE FOR AGES – song lyrics




G                           Em
I’ve been waiting in love for ages
C                                         D                    G
But you don’t… you just don’t come up

Yeah, waiting in love for ages 

But ya just don’t — ya just don’t come up



Now you paid me a little visit, lady,
So I could show my love
And you held out five fingers, baby,
So I would kiss your glove

7Em                           3C
And when I hear you shout
7Em                      3C
When I hear you cry out           HOOK
C                 D                 G
Let’s do it all over again!
C                 D                 G
Let’s do it all over again!


I will walk the streets with flowers for you
We’ll see the dawn come in
I’ll take you  to Paris, Lady,
Your favourite restaurant by the Seine

I’ve been waiting in love for ages
But you just don’t, you just don’t come up
I see you across this smokey  room
Still you just don’t, you just don’t come up


I wanted to love you, sweetheart,
You said I wasn’t man enough
I said I’d love you like a woman
But you wanted sterner stuff

And now we’re lying in the dawn
And I find we can get it up
So I gave you a rose at breakfast
And I bought you your favourite book

Hook—And when I hear you shout
When I hear you cry out
Yes, when I hear you shout
Let’s do it all over again!

I said I’d take you travelling
But I don’t get around so much
We didn’t go to Paris
So I took you to the bush

And now I see you’re holding (7Em)
My promise in your hand
When promises are honey
And we’re walking in the sand

Orion now is rising
By the red eye of the beast
Aphrodite and the hunting dogs
Are dancing in the east

And now when I hear you shout
Yeah, when I hear you cry out
Yes, now as I hear you shout
Let’s do it all over again!




(C)2017 by W.G. Milne



This is a song I haven’t recorded yet but I can hear it
in my head.
