To alaska with love Lyrics

To alaska with love by The Roches  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


To alaska with love she tried to push him away with a
ten foot pole
saying i'm just a crusty old donut
without any hole
wearying bewildered bachelor how
could he know
that she'd move her suitcase to his place a year ago

where he stood in the doorway no clothes wearing
asking permission to give all his love and his caring
love and care

theirs is a real thing, a dish in the sink
a dog in the stairwell making a stink
they got a true love so real you can feel it

for christmas he gave her
a silver and gold jewish star
he put it on top of the tree
and said there you are
she giggled and cried and
rolled on the living room floor
and laughed at all of his jokes
so he told her some more

there he stood in the doorway
crumpled and daring
asking permission to give all his love
and his caring
love and care

theirs is a real thing
a working man's shoe
worn through at the sole
as good as new
they got a true love
so real you can feel it

five o'clock by the window pane watching the rain
new york city blues oh, the rain's coming down hard
it's dark out there you gotta have something to do

so one day she said i must go to alaska this winter
he yelled and kicked the table his toe got a splinter
still he escorted her up to the gate at the airport
saying dammit i don't understand what you have to go there for

calendar pages were flipping he stayed home waiting
saying oh this woman i love is so irritating

theirs is a real thing, a welcome home kiss
the smell of his whiskers that she did miss
they got a true love so real you can feel it
