Hayes Carll - Beautiful Thing Lyrics




Columbus Avenue and Eighty-Seventh Street
My heart was racin' when I got the word that we would meet
Aw babe, it was a beautiful thing
A summer thunderstorm, we had to run and hide
An empty phone booth, tangled up and stoppin' time
Aw babe, it was a beautiful thing

The world stopped turning every time I heard you call my name
I had a feeling that nothing's gonna be the same

You were a bon vivant, I was a libertine
We lit a fire like neither one of us had ever seen
Aw babe, it was a beautiful thing

That size-two pencil skirt a-ridin' up your thigh
Back of a taxicab, good lord, you're blowin' my mind
Aw babe, it was a beautiful thing

I hate to tell ya, but I think we might have caused a scene
Let 'em all stare, 'cause it really don't matter to me

You've been living like a queen for a long, long time
I wonder, could I be your king? Would you be my bride?

Then came the twelfth of May, it was a big affair
You wore the perfect dress and everyone we love was there
Aw babe, it was a beautiful thing
I said, hey now babe, it was a beautiful thing
