Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Too Fresh
 

 



Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes ,
as she sang there were tears
on my cheeks and my lashes.


When the dog bites, when the bee stings,
oh, it reminds me of my sister
when Julie Andrews sings.


I had to walk out of the movie show.
To see her face and hear her voice...
why she had to die I'll never know.


Cream coloured ponies and crisp apple cake,
she'd the same way with children,
is this how hearts really break?


People who drink should never drive,
the tragedy new and too fresh in my mind,
Joannie is gone but that man is alive.


And then I remember my favourite things,
remember the laughter, the good times we had.
So good, so clever, so special she was...
and then I don't feel so bad!






Note from theauthor...

I was only sixteen and my dear sister
was twenty six, mother of two.
When I first saw Julie Andrews
in the role of Maria
it was like seeing my sister
and I had to leave the theatre.
