lyrics

[Old Man]

Oh, my
My lady, you’re beautiful

Oh, my
A triumph of agelessness

I’m a young man again
In the shadow of your grace

[Aunt Sara]

Who is this man? Do I know you?
Pardon me, but just who are you?
Old man, stay away from me

[Old Man]

Oh, my
My lady, you’re clever too

Oh, my
You speak like an angel

I’ll be your old fool
If you’ll be my sweet lady

[Aunt Sara]

Chatter all you want to chatter
I don’t know you, you don’t matter
Old man, stay away from me

[Elizabeth]

Sara, who are you?
This man’s trying to woo you
I’m sorry sir, dementia
You know how it goes

[Old Man]

Oh, my
She’s from heaven, I know it

Oh, my
Sent from God to spare the loneliness

Come inside with me, I pray
A cup of coffee, I’ll pay
