Randy Newman Gainesville, Florida (Demo) Lyrics

Last updated: 06/28/2012 11:00:00 AM

[Margaret:] I was born in Gainesville, Florida
And my father was a tailor
And my mother ran a cafe near the university

I've a brother died aborning
And another who's a sailor
I've a sister who is older, and living on her own
I have tried all my life to be kind to others
Even when others were unkind to me
I've been told all my life when I found someone
He would look at me and I'd know

Are you really mine?
Are you really mine?
Does your heart glow
When you see me walkin' down the street, boy?
Do your eyes shine
When you know that we're about to meet?
I don't think they do

I was born in Gainesville, Florida
And my father was a tailor
And my mother ran a cafe near the university
And she didn't raise a fool when she raised me
