Young and Wild

by Errol Mondell   Feb 25, 2018

I met a girl once before
young and lovely with a heart of gold
I took her in under my wings
we became lovers before we were friends

We visited friends and had a ball
made love until the break of dawn
with a gentle smile upon her face
as I held her in a warm embrace

We spent our time having fun
going to parties and drinking rum
this girl of mine was young and wild
I couldn’t get her off my mind

As time went by she began to play
away from home she would stay
I could not sleep and stayed awake
wondering if I had made a mistake

We never got to say goodbye
as we went our own way
I never saw her face again
the girl I met around the way
