Roman Eyes

This is just a made up song about how superficial things seem more important when you are young, but life has a way of teaching people to look deeper.

Roman Eyes

By Jeff Gilpin

February 26, 2012

Verse 1
I [D] met a little girl in [A]Germany
Said her [G]name was [A]Veronica, [D]Danka-schoen
The [D]prettiest girl I [A]ever did seen
With hair like [G]yellow [A]flowers and eyes of [D]emerald green
A [Bm]prettier girl I’ve [F#]never seen
Than [G]Veronica, Danka-[A]schoen

Verse 2
I [D]met another girl from [A]Paris, France
I [G]didn’t catch her [A]name but [D]she sure could dance
And [D]if she ever [A]got the chance
She would [G]give you a [A]wink that’d [D]make you adjust your pants
That [Bm]girl from Paris, [F#]France
[G]Lordy, could she [A]dance

Verse 3
I [D]met another girl from the [A]good old USA
Her [G]name was [A]Loraine oh the [D]games she would play
Like [D]tether ball [A]with your heart
[G]She had [A]that game [D]down to an art
But [Bm]that was [F#]Loraine
She was the [G]master of that [A]game

Bridge
[F#]It’s been now many [Bm]years
Since a [F#]girl has cause me [Bm]tears
I’ve [F#]settled down my [Bm]roaming eyes
[G]For some reason… I [A]don’t know [A7]why

Verse 4
[D]I wish I met this [A]girl before
This [G]girl who [A]has meant [D]so much more
And [D]showed me what life is [A]really for
I [G]wish I [A]met this [D]girl before
This [Bm]girl who has meant [F#]so much more
She [G]showed me what [A]life is for

Verse 5
[D]So thank you Ve[A]ronica
[G]Danka-[A]schoen, auf [D]wiedersehen
And [D]thank you Mademoi[A]selle
[G]You who [A]danced so [D]well
[Bm]Oh and thanks to [F#]you Loraine
I [G]hope you still [A]enjoy your [D]games

A A7 Bm D F# G

Re: Roman Eyes

I purposely left out any indication of nationality in verse 4. I'm hoping she'll get that's her.

Re: Roman Eyes

My buddy, John Reno wrote a song about a rich, obnoxious woman.
She still frequents the beach club where he knew her but I doubt she ever had a clue the song was about her. I saw her strut through the place one time when I played tuba there with John. He didn't even have to point her out to me. I could I.D. her at first glance.
No mistaking the overblown ego.
