Bonnie’s Best Eight Bars

 

It’s funny now looking back

Like a scene straight out a farce

Naked in the back room singing

Bonnie’s best eight bars

 

Those drunken nights hooked on love

Balancing our hearts

Caked in powder blue cool

And Bonnie’s best eight bars

She said

 

Is this my chance my one big chance

My one stab at happiness

I’m gonna grab it with both hands

I’m ready, ready when you are

For Bonnie’s best eight bars

 

Two sunken eyes looking back

From a face I recognise

But time has knocked the shine off

Bonnie’s sacred smile

 

And there she sits

Like Buddha locked in a room above my heart

Maybe she’s still waiting

For Bonnie’s best eight bars

 

I’m ready, ready when you are

 

I’m ready, ready when you are

 

I’m ready, ready when you are
