Song sung blue

This song weaving through my mind this morning when I awoke. It's Rickie Lee Jones and I've not heard it in years. Likely it will be in my CD player by this afternoon.

On Saturday afternoons in 1963

The most as you'll ever go
Is back where you used to know
If grown-ups could laugh this slow
Where as you watch the hour snow
Years may go by

So hold on to your special friend
Here, you'll need something to keep him in:
"Now you stay inside this foolish grin ... "
Though any day your secrets end
Then again
Years may go by

You saved your own special friend
'Cuz here you need something to hide him in
And you stay inside that foolish grin
When everyday now secrets end
Oh and then again
Years may go by
