Frances Amanda is going to town again,
All gussied up and laughing –
You should hear her laughing,
Telling tales!
The sound of it rings.
It is such a bright, clear day,
She can see for eternity.

Oh my...
Jerry, Larry, Joanie & Glenna –
They’re laughing too!
Here they come now,
Running up...
What a sound!
What a crew!
So much to talk about and do!

And Glenn.
My love. My love.
Glenn’s got his arms out, smiling,
“It’s so good to see you, Kid!”

Ain’t nobody gotta rub anybody’s legs, anybody’s neck,
Unless they just plain want to.
They feel so good!
All over, all at once –
They feel so good!

And we do too.
