Oh, love me, Take me in your arms. Let me rock you, hold you, Smile away all your sadness, put your trust in me. Once under a starry sky I led you on and told you lies Drank too much whiskey on that hot summer night. I acted so slyly because you were acting so shy, Oh forgive me Genevieve. If you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve, You're not the child who smiled so innocently And I'm not the rogue that I used to be, So will you come back to me Sweet Lady Genevieve.
