Manhattan Transfer JEANNINE Lyrics

Last updated:

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine
She looked just like a royal queen
And she cruised by
With some wealthy guy
In a Cadillac limousine
Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine
Recall when we were seventeen
I was a beau
'Twas not so long ago
But too short
Of that long lost dream
To satisfy Jeannine

Now she's gone from me
Moved away from the old neighborhood
And I'm certain
She's gone for good

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine
The dollar signs stood in between
It was a love lost to the rising cost
But since then, I have never seen
I have never seen Jeannine

Instrumental solo

Now she's gone from me
Moved away from the old neighborhood
And I'm certain
She's gone for good

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine
The dollar signs stood in between
It was a love lost to the rising cost
But since then, I have never seen
I have never seen Jeannine

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine
Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine

Scat section

Hey cats - are you ready?
Oh Jeannine (Jeannine)
Jeannine (Jeannine)

Last time
Last time I saw Jeannine --
Last time I saw Jeannine --
