Lyrics

Hey Pal

Written By: Words and Music by Mary Beth Abella (ASCAP) and John Abella (ASCAP)

Hey pal, I'm lost
I feel asleep at the bus stop
I dreamed I saw you on a park bench
You put your head on my lap
I'll make it soft with my backpack
I'll make you warm with my hands

Come inside
Where it's warm
In my arms
Once inside
We can make a fire
with our eyes

Doo doot doo doo
doo doo doo doot doo

Hey pal, it's snowing
Let's make our way to a house
We can take off our shoes, there
And make love on the couch
I'll wrap you in a warm blanket
And blow warm air in your mouth

Come inside
Where it's warm
In my arms
Once inside
We can make a fire
with our eyes

Doo doot doo doo
doo doo doo doot doo
Doo doot doo doo
doo doo doo doot doo

Come inside
Where it's warm
In my arms
Once inside
We can make a fire
with our eyes

Come inside
Where it's warm
In my arms
Once inside
We can make a fire
with our eyes
