I'm Not Lisa
Jessi Colter
Words and music by Jessi Colter 1975

I'm not Lisa, My name is Julie.
Lisa left you years ago.
My eyes are not blue, but mine won’t leave you
‘Till the sunlight has touched your face.

She was your morning light,
Her smile told of no night.

Your love for her grew
With each rising sun.

And then one winter day,
His hand led her away.
She left you here drowning in your tears,
Here where you've stayed for years,
Crying Lisa, Lisa.

I'm not Lisa, My name is Julie.
Lisa left you years ago.
My eyes are not blue, but mine won’t leave you
‘Till the sunlight has touched your face.

I'm not Lisa.

From: "Roy T. O'Conner"

Here he comes, look at that, look at that
There he goes, look at that, look at that
And he ain't wearin' no clothes

Fastest thing on two feet
Look at that, look at that

Of his anatomy
