Return to Lyrics list

We used to play hide and go seek
Around the age of seven
In that schoolyeard it was unique
To find a place to hide
But we tried
Not a tree not a flower
Just the pavements of summer
Close your eyes and count real slow
Even long ago
It seemed to me that I was always
Looking for Maureen

And when we played who do you love
Somewhere around eleven
It was Maureen that I thought of
Though it was clear to see
I filled her with ennui
I used to send her valentines
With honey bees that said Bee Mine
Oh I never signed my name though
My sister Margaret let me know
A couple girls liked me but I was always
Looking for Maureen

I saw her once down at the shore
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven
It must have been the year before
We both turned twenty-one
Man it was pretty fun
We rode the wild mouse
We got lost in the haunted house
She looked just like my first wife
I've been playing hide and seek all my life
Ally all in free but I was always
Looking for Maureen.
