    AKA Oliver, 40 years ago, I was mesmerized by his song "Jean."

    Jean, Jean, roses are red
    All the leaves have gone green
    And the clouds are so low
    You can touch them, and so
    Come out to the meadow, Jean

    Jean, Jean, you're young and alive
    Come out of your half-dreamed dream
    And run, if you will, to the top of the hill
    Open your arms, bonnie Jean

    Till the sheep in the valley come home my way
    Till the stars fall around me and find me alone
    When the sun comes a-singin' I'll still be waitin'

    For Jean, Jean, roses are red
    And all of the leaves have gone green
    While the hills are ablaze
    With the moon's yellow haze
    Come into my arms, bonnie Jean

    (Jean, Jean), Jean, you're young and alive
    Come out of your half-dreamed dream
    And run, if you will, to the top of the hill
    Come into my arms, bonnie Jean

    Remember?

    I believe that was from the movie "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie," written by Rod McKuen. Good movie.
