The Ballad of Roy Orbison

(McCurdy)
Such a day, such a night
And when I left you in the morning
I could tell that everything could be right

Where there's a will, there's a way
And if I learn to speak your language
I could think of clever things to say

But we don't see the light of day
And we love every night away
In awhile we may leave our bed
But there's no place left to go instead

Long ago when we met
It was somewhere south of Texas
But it wasn't Acapulco yet

We were gazing eye to eye
It was hot and hopeless love
Without a moment left to wonder why

And the words that you whispered low
Were some words that I didn't know
But I knew what you really meant
And on and on the story went

Refrain
Now she kisses me in a different tongue
It lasts for hours' cause we're oh so young
And we don't talk so much 'cause we don't know how
And it won't last long if I don't learn now

Hacienda, nochos zorro
En el oro me segunda yo no tengo
Yo no puesto por favor

Ford Grenada, North Korea
Senorita en Cordoba John Travolta
Frank Sinatra senor

And the words that you whispered low
Were some words that I didn't know
But I knew what you really meant
And on and on the story went

Refrain

I'm just trying to talk to you
