lyrics

Dear Aunt Maym on North Lake Shore Drive

I was one of seven and when I was eleven
I’d write letters to my Dear Aunt Maym
She was smart and pretty, she lived in the big city
Like in the movies, no two days were ever the same
In the summers I would go, all by myself to Chicago
On a steam train from Escanaba, Michigan
We’d have lunch in the cafes, we'd go and see the sights all day
Then she’d put me on a train back home again

Dear Aunt Maym on North Lake Shore Drive
She’d ride the El to Illinois Bell
And one day Aunt Maym fell…in love
With a man from Bellingham

She was on the switchboard, hanging onto each word
Every time Sydney Peterson would call
She moved out west with him to the state of Washington
They were gonna be married, but his sister ruined it all
Not a word was spoken, two lovers hearts were broken
Maym went back home, and did her best to move on
Syd got in the auto business, moved to Alaska, found a Mrs.
They were living life for a little while, till she was gone

Dear Aunt Maym on North Lake Shore Drive
She’d ride the El to Illinois Bell
And one day Aunt Maym fell…in love
With a man from Bellingham

The road led him down to Detroit, motor town
Syd found a number and he gave Maym’s cousin a jingle
To learn what she could say about the one that got away
“She never married, Cousin Maym’s still single!
She said she’d never fall, she’d never be in love at all
Like she was with a man from Bellingham.”
So to Chicago Syd fled, and after 2 months they were wed, he said
“If we get 10 years, I’m gonna die a happy man.”
And they had 25 years together!

Dear Aunt Maym on North Lake Shore Drive
She’d ride the El to Illinois Bell
And one day Aunt Maym fell…in love
With a man from Bellingham
