I so often dream
We might make a team
But so wild a scheme
I must banish
For each time I start
To open my heart
You vanish

We might find some isle
Where lotuses smile
And our time beguile
Going native
But how can we go
Unless you are co
Operative

My dear, I've a feeling you are
So near and yet so far
You appear like a radiant star
First so near, then again so far

I just start getting you keen
On clinches galore with me
When fate steps in on the scene
And mops up the floor with me
No wonder I'm a bit under par
For you're so near and yet so far

My condition is only so-so
'Cause whenever I feel you're close, oh
You turn out to be, oh, so
Far
