Glo’s Dream

Glo’s Dream

There’s a party tonight on the island
Beside the sand and the seaweed
The golden oldies are playing
And that big beach house is swaying
To the sound of Bernadine Read

Everyone who’s anyone is coming
You see it’s a high brow affair
Between her and her other man
Who can give her more than I can
Don’t they make such a fancy pair

Chorus:
It’s always been Glo’s dream
To be a member of high society
She said to see and be seen
She couldn’t be seen with me
I guess there’s no more room
In Glo’s dream

When we met she worked at Piggly Wiggly
I paid for groceries with my heart
I was determined to date her
We got married six months later
Up til now we’ve not been apart

Last month she started crying in her sleep
Dreaming of things I can’t give her
She’s looking for something better
I had no choice but to let her
Since she said I can’t go with her

Chorus:
It’s always been Glo’s dream
To be a member of high society
She said to see and be seen
She couldn’t be seen with me
I guess there’s no more room
In Glo’s dream

I still can’t figure out where she met him
Cause he runs with a different crowd
She wanted a change of scenery
I think she has forgotten me
She got her wish, I got left out

Bridge:
Here I sit on the beach of Galveston
Humming a Glen Campbell song
Everything’s not what they tell you it is
That’s been a Jimmy Webb tune all along

Chorus:
It’s always been Glo’s dream
To be a member of high society
She said to see and be seen
She couldn’t be seen with me
I guess there’s no more room
In Glo’s dream
