MacArthur Park – Richard Harris (1968 Original Version)

DID SOMEONE LEAVE YOUR CAKE OUT IN THE RAIN? A controversial song by Jimmy Webb may have new meaning for those of us with long-time Tick Borne infections. DID YOU KNOW? We suffer from “brain fog”, depression, cognition problems and overwhelming fatigue. It is not a “fake” for us – we are not just trying to get your attention!

DID SOMEONE LEAVE YOUR CAKE OUT IN THE RAIN?
Richard Harris – MACARTHUR PARK (1968) Original Version is coming soon to our Music VIDEO Jukebox at musicians4childrenwithlyme.com 

We support KIDS with LYME and their families. Those of us with long-time Tick Borne infections like LYME suffer from cognitive issues (the classic “Brain Fog”) and severe exhaustion and depression. We desperately wish we could be like we used to be – normal. Here is another song that may describe how many of us feel.

Lyrics

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love’s hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
Oh no!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
Oh no!

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You’ll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life
Oh, after all the loves of my life
I’ll be thinking of you
And wondering why

MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
Oh no!

Oh no
No
Oh no!
