Elaina she’s a little bit crazy she sings in a cabaret band
She got a couple of coins in her pocket to jingle
But no diamond rings on her hand
Ah but I don’t know nothing about her
Except she was in the back bar
Oh how I wish I was able to laugh and say
You know how these things are

Elaina she’s a lover of music its part of her body and soul
She lives for the song the rhyme and the feel
And she wanted to let me know
Maybe she was talking sweet nothings
I couldn’t say for sure
At the end of the night she gave me a kiss
An’ smiled as she walked out the door

Elaina I tried hard to find
A place in my heart for you
Elaina you left me behind
Once away oh how swiftly you flew
Now it seems you’re just someone I once knew

Elaina she wrote me a letter
You know sent me a picture for my wall
She might have been here for a change in her plans
But I wasn’t home when she called
And upstairs my child lies a-sleeping
She’s wrapped up she’s kissed a sweet good night
I wonder does she dream of the sun or the moon
Do the stars guide her heavenly flight
