You were there when I was small
I wonder if you remember
standing so tall on the table
playing guitar in your blue jeans
in an assemblyman's crowded office
in the bronx where we had a party
to celebrate the end of our play 'grease'
when i was small and you stood so tall
I asked you the name of the song you sang
you said it was a cover of a song by the dire straits
they called it 'romeo and juliet'
but you said you sang it in the style of 'the indigo girls'
as if i'd know the difference
i knew nothing then
except i wanted to be just like you
