Princess Delray

There’s Tuscan pizza cooking

in the wood-fired stove

Guitar notes roll around the estate’s olive grove

In San Del Mar Plaza strolls Princess Delray

Where she steals all the eyes like a kitten at play


She comes from a place

full of everyday grace

Where financial disclosure’s a social disgrace

She embraces a language like a favourite Shiraz

Her compassionate wisdom an allspice of jazz


Your sun-kissed smile

can light up the night

You wear it to play!

You wear it to fight!

Do you wear it alone?

Do you wear it to bed?

Will you wear it for someone

alive in your head?


When sadness descends

she’ll stifle a tear

If you enter her sphere her composure’s sincere

If male pride descends to pounce as she turns

Feel the power of her eyes as her confidence burns


Alone like a star

she keeps lovers out far

Allows only a driver to be in her car

There’s none who will pay to play on her stage

She’s happy to stay protectively caged


Your sun-kissed smile

can light up the night

You wear it to play!

You wear it to fight!

Do you wear it alone?

Do you wear it to bed?

Will you wear it for someone

alive in your head?


Carla Delray you’re a girl like all others

But you’re also a girl so unlike all the others

So why seal your heart from all passionate play?

I hope your compassion won’t unravel and fray!


Your sun-kissed smile

can light up the night

You wear it to play!

You wear it to fight!

Do you wear it alone?

Do you wear it to bed?

Will you wear it for someone

alive in your head?


Eggs fry at Di Carlo’s

this morning in May

Pan handlers watch joggers as they kick off their day

Can we meet about ten at Cafe Livar?

Then leave Port Giunzione by old subway car


Your sun-kissed smile

can light up the night

You wear it to play!

You wear it to fight!

Do you wear it alone?

Do you wear it to bed?

Will you wear it for someone

alive in your head?


Carla Delray you’re a girl like all others

But you’re also a girl so unlike all the others

So why seal your heart from all passionate play?

I hope your compassion won’t unravel and fray!


Your sun-kissed smile

can light up the night

You wear it to play!

You wear it to fight!

Do you wear it alone?

Do you wear it to bed?

Will you wear it for someone

alive in your head?
