Calling Connecticut

Calling Connecticuit

I’m calling Connecticuit again
Calling Connecticuit to talk to friends
I’m calling Connecticuit again
Calling to say I’m sorry it had to end

Lucy from the Navy wasn’t in
I called her to tell her no one wins
Lucy from the Navy wasn’t in
I called to see if she was with him

Again

I bleed for another day
Somehow, some way, I hope
She’ll come back to me
Hope that this isn’t the end

My poor friends

I called Connecticuit again
Another week I try to make amends
Lucy from the Navy wasn’t in
She’s probably forgotten all about me

Out, out on the ships at sea
Lucy from the Navy loved more
Lucy from the Navy loved the ships
She loved them much more than me

She doesn’t know what I’ve done
To ensure her life was won
No one knows what I feel
My sacrifice I cannot reveal

I know that she is now happy
Loving the hulls and ports out there
In a world I promised to show her
And now I can never make the trip

Oh, I see

All the things I never said
The people I never met
I regret my one wrong move
Why did I have to do it?

I miss, I miss, a girl so grand
My mistakes have cost me
A world that is now lost to me
Now I don’t know where I land

I called again the other day
Tried to talk, to show her my way
I called again the other day
But Lucy from the Navy wasn’t in
