Lyrics of

The second arrangement

	
Pour out the wine, little girl
I've got just two friends in this whole wide world
Here's to reckless lovers
We all need somebody
Stashed in the yellow Jag
I've got my life and laundry in a Gladstone bag
You should know the program
Just one red rose and a tender goodbye [One last goodbye]

And I run to the second arrangement
It's only the natural thing
Who steps out with no regrets
A sparkling conscience
A new address
When I run to the second arrangement
The home of a mutual friend
Now's the time to redefine the first arrangement again

It's a sticky situation
A serious affair
I must explain it to you somehow
Right now I'll just move back one square

Here comes that noise again
Another scrambled message from my last best friend
Something I can dance to
A song with tears in it
Old friends abandon me
It's just the routine politics of jealousy
Someday we'll remember
That one red rose and one last goodbye [One last goodbye]

[Chorus]


                                        The Second Arrangement (demo)

                             Pour out the wine, little girl
                             We got just two friends in this whole wide world,
                             Ciao, bon giorno, baby
                             It's been a lovely night, the wine was right,
                             I am a refugee,
                             And I like things just the way they used to be,
                             I'm the same damn fool, that you knew years ago,
                             So broken-hearted,
                             One last goodbye

                             [Chorus:]
                             Then I run to the second arrangement
                             It's only the natural thing
                             The roue steps out, with no regrets,
                             A sparkling conscience, a new address
                             Then I run to the second arrangement,
                             The home of a mutual friend,
                             Now's the time, to redefine
                             The first arrangement again


                             You think you understand,
                             Let me take you by your hand,
                             I have never felt this way before,
                             It's your thing if you say so,
                             Don't ask me 'cause I don't know,
                             I don't need this heartache anymore

                             Pour out the wine, little girl
                             We got just two friends in this whole wide world,
                             Ciao, bon giorno, baby
                             It's been a lovely night, the wine was right,
                             I am a refugee,
                             And I like things just the way they used to be,
                             I'm the same damn fool, that you knew years ago,
                             So broken-hearted,
                             One last goodbye

                             [Chorus]
