Sure Has Been a While


Sure Has Been a While

Loosen up your heart.
Resurrect your style.
Tea with friends. it sure has been a while.

Practice up your lines.
Try ’em with a smile:
“Come on in. It sure has been a while!”

Let your morning glories open
For the new dawn ’bout to shine.
Unfurl those fuschia trumpets
And turn the world divine.

Kettle’s awfully full.
Just about to boil.
Come on in. It sure has been a while!

Let your morning glories open
For the new dawn ’bout to shine.
Unfurl those fuschia trumpets
And turn the world divine.

Kettle’s awfully full.
Just about to boil.
Come on in. It sure has been a while!
Hello friends, it sure has been a while
