Jessie

From a phone booth in Vegas, Jessie calls at five a.m.
to tell me how she's tired of all of them.
She says, "Baby I've been thinking about a trailer by the sea,
We could go to Mexico: you, the cat, and me.
We'll drink tequila and look for seashells, now doesn't that sound sweet?"
Oh Jessie, you always do this every time I get back on my feet.
 
Jessie, paint your pictures about how it's gonna be,
By now I should know better your dreams are never free,
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea,
Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me,
Oh, Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me.
 
She asked me how the cat's been, I said, "Moses, he's just fine.
But used to think about you all the time,
We finally took your pictures down, off the wall.
Oh Jessie, how do you always seem to know just when to call?"
She says, "Get your stuff together, bring Moses and drive real fast."
And I listened to her promise, I swear to God this time it's gonna last.
 
Jessie, paint your pictures about how it's gonna be,
By now I should know better your dreams are never free,
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea,
Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me.
 
I'll love in the sunshine, lay you down in the warm white sand,
And who knows, maybe this time, things will turn out just the way you planned.
 
Jessie, paint your pictures about how it's gonna be,
By now I should know better, your dreams are never free,
But tell me all about our little trailer by the sea,
Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me,
Oh, Jessie, you can always sell any dream to me.
