Shakespeare in the Alley


Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts

 

lily, rosemary, and the jack of hearts


The missing verse in "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" comes just after the verse where the backstage manager goes looking for the hanging judge while the Jack hurries by in the costume of a monk. It is printed in the album songbook and in Lyrics 1962-1985:

Lily's arms were locked around the man that she dearly loved to touch,
She forgot all about the man she couldn't stand who hounded her so much.
"I've missed you so," she said to him, and he felt she was sincere,
But just beyond the door he felt jealousy and fear.
Just another night in the life of the Jack of Hearts.

This verse adds nothing and concludes with a cliché which remains untransformed.
