Come Away Melinda

Bobbie Gentry
Mommy, mommy, come and look
See what I have found
A little way away from here
While digging in the ground

Come away, Melinda
Come in and close the door
It's nothing but a picture book
They had before the war

Mommy, mommy, come and see
Oh, mommy come and look
There's five or six Melinda girls
Inside this picture book

Come away, Melinda
Come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war

Mommy, mommy, come and see
Oh, mommy hurry, do
There's someone grown up very tall
Who doesn't look like you

Come away, Melinda
Come in and close the door
Your father was a man like him
Before they had the war

Mommy, mommy, come and see
Such things I've never seen
There's happy faces all around
And now the ground is green

Come away, Melinda
Come in and close the door
That's just the way it used to be
Before they had the war
