    Lyrics

    Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
    I'll grow up someday you'll see
    Savin' all my kisses just for you
    Signed with love forever true

    Joni was the girl who lived next door
    I've known her I guess 10 years or more
    Joni wrote me a note one day
    And this is what she had to say

    Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
    I'll grow up someday you'll see
    Savin' all my kisses just for you
    Signed with love forever true

    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 I'm twenty two
    Joni I just can't wait for you

    Soon I left our little home town
    Got me a job and tried to settle down
    But her words kept haunting my memory
    The words that Joni said to me

    Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
    I'll grow up someday you'll see
    Savin' all my kisses just for you
    Signed with love forever true

    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'd marry me

    I ran all 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 your best friend John.
