Apology Song


I'm really sorry Steven

But your bicycle's been stolen

I was watchin it for you

'Til you came back in the fall
Guess I didn't do such a good job after all

Verse 2:

I was feeling really sorry Steven

And I spent all morning grieving

And everybody's saying

That you'll take the news gracefully

Somehow I don't think I'll be getting off that easily

Chorus 1:

I meant her no harm

When I left her unlocked Outside the Orange Street Food Farm

I was just running in

Didn't think I'd be that long

 I came out, she was gone

 And all that was there was some bored old dog

Leashed up to the place where your bicycle had been

Guess we'll never see poor Madeleine again

Verse 3 (match verse 1 for chords):

Let this be consolation, Steven
That all the while you were in England
I treated her with care and respect
And have her lots of love
And I was usually pretty good 'bout locking her up

Chorus 2 (match chorus 2 for chords):
Where has she gone?
Well, I bet she's on the bottom of a Frenchtown pond
Rudely abused on some hescher's joyride
So I wrote you this song
In the hopes that you'd forgive me
Even though it was wrong
Being so careless with a thing so great
And taking your poor Madeleine away, away
