The Ballad Of Julie Finkle

Ray Davies, released on The Storyteller (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 1998

.

I first met Julie a long time ago,

Staring up at me from the front row

She had a timeless glow, she was the image of youth

That never grows old or gets long in the tooth

And who would think after all these years

That good fortune would smile my way

She's a symbol of all that I believe in

She was there at the beginning, she's still out there today

.

[Chorus:]

Julie, Julie, I hope that you're still single

Julie, Julie, oh my mystery Julie Finkle

(Woohooh hoohooh hooh, woohooh hoohooh hooh)

.

After me she went with a biker from Stoke,

Had a child with a banker from Bolton

I hear she ended up with a really nice bloke,

Who's respectable now, so my silence is golden

To protect her and him I've used a pseudonym,

But I hope she gets the vital connection

It was a long time ago, but I want you to know

Julie, you were the pick of a prime selection

.

[Chorus]

.

But keep looking for your love (Woohooh hoohooh hooh)

.

Truly, Julie, you're only a name,

You could be a Molly or a Sarah-Jane

But if I should never see you again,

I'll never forget you, truly

.

[Chorus]

.

Keep looking for your love (Woohooh hoohooh hooh)

.

Julie, Julie, oh my mystery Julie Finkle
