“Jimmy please say you’ll wait for me
I’ll grow up someday you’ll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love forever true”

Joni was the girl who live next door
I’ve known her, I guess ten years or more
Joni wrote me a note one day
And this is what she had to say

Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her teardrops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say

Joni Joni please don’t cry
You’ll forget me by and by
You’re just fifteen and I’m twenty two
And Joni I just can’t wait for you

Soon I left our little home town
Got me a job and try to settle down-*
But these words kept on in my memory
The words that Joni said to me

I packed my clothes, and I caught a plane
I had to see Joni, I had to explain
How my heart was filled with her memory
And ask my Joni if she marry me

I ran on the way to the house next door
But things weren’t like they were before
My teardrops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say

“Jimmy Jimmy please don’t cry
You’ll forget me by and by
It’s been five years since you’ve been gone
Jimmy I married with your best friend John”
