Verse1

So long Frank Lloyd Wright
I can't believe your song is gone so soon
I barely learned the tune so soon
So soon

Verse2

I'll remember Frank Lloyd Wright
All of the nights we'd harmonize till dawn
I never laughed so long
So long, So long

Chorus

Architects may come and architects may go
and never change your point of view
When I run dry I stop a while and think of you


(then first two lines of chorus and verse2)


Notes:

Instrumental I
--------------


Paul Simon plays underneath the flute from the beginning up to the first Ab,
then he skips somewhere and I'm not sure where, you'll have to work it out
yourself...

Instrumental II
---------------


He plays from the Gm7 to C7 (marked by stars)
