Dan Bern - Little Russian Girl

Song Lyrics

God bless you Lana
Little Russian girl
For talking to me
Just when I needed you most
God bless you Lana
Russian coffee girl
For talking to me
Just when I needed you most

I'm sorry that your mama
Is far away in Russia
And she can't come see you
And you can't go see her
And I'm sorry your first marriage
Ended in divorce
When your first husband felt he had to lock you in a cage
And I'm sorry that this second one
Is making you unhappy
Cause now your husband doesn't understand his wife at all
And most I guess I'm sorry you're married and you can't
Drive up the coast tomorrow with me on your day off

But anyway Lana
God bless you Lana
For talking to me just when I needed you most

I'm glad the coffee shop wasn't busy at all
You saved me from a night of trying to scrape myself off the wall

I've just let another one walk out of my life
A sweet bird who always kept such a nice nest
For a while I came back but finally I told her
Keep your pretty eggs warm for somebody else

And now I see her eyes
In everybody's eyes
And I can't help thinking that I'm just a fool
I cry at the strip show
I cry at the stop lights
I cry in the Howard Stern movie
I cry

And right now I could cling to just about anyone
I'm a classic candidate to reb-b-b-b-bound

So God bless you Lana
Little Russian girl
For talking to me just when I needed it most

And if you weren't married, I might be with you now
And we'd be holding on so tight
Cause if we let go
The world could start spinning
Clear out of control
Thanks for talking to me when I needed it most

I'm glad the coffee shop wasn't busy at all
You saved me from a night
Of trying to scrape myself off the wall

God bless you Lana
Little Russian girl
For talking to me just when I needed you most

God bless you Lana
Little Russian girl
For talking to me just when I needed you most
