Song for the day: “MAC ARTHUR PARK” by Richard Harris

with 2 comments

“MAC ARTHUR PARK” by Richard Harris…….

A  7-minute plus song released as a 45 rpm…..we had a copy of this 45…..it reached #2 in the US…..

one of my favorite songs written by Jimmy Webb……
great words and arrangement…….
great vocals by Richard Harris……

“Spring was never waiting for us, girl It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love’s hot, fevered iron Like a striped pair of pants
MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it ‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again Oh, no!
I recall the yellow cotton dress Foaming like a wave On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands And the old men playing checkers by the trees
MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it And I’ll never have that recipe again Oh, no!
There will be another song for me For I will sing it There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it I will drink the wine while it is warm And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life After all the loves of my life You’ll still be the one
I will take my life into my hands and I will use it I will win the worship in their eyes
and I will lose it I will have the things that I desire And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life After all the loves of my life I’ll be thinking of you And wondering why
MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it And I’ll never have that recipe again Oh, no!”
