MacArthur Park Songtext

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead as we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and we're pressed
In loves hot, fevered iron like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
And I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh, no

I recall the yellow cotton dress foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men, playing checkers by the trees


MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
And I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh, no

There will be another song for me

For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm

And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky

And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
And I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh, no
