"Don't cry joni"

Postby vietnamman » Thu Mar 11, 2004 12:19 pm

I have heard this song when I was on duty before some days. I felt very comfortable, I translated it into Vietnamese (I am a Vietnamese) and I was surprising because this is an interesting lyric I have ever translated.
Have you ever heard this song???? Plz give some comments for it! We can discuss about this, OK?

Nope, haven't heard of it.
Who's singing it?

Here!

Song : http://mail.sjsmit.edu.tw/~wncarson/joni.mp3

Lyric :



Don't Cry Joni Lyrics

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

Man - 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

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

Man- Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her tear drops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say

Man- Joni, Joni please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
You're just fifteen
I'm twenty two
And Joni I just cant wait for you

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

Woman- Jimmy please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up some day you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love
forever true

Man - 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 tear drops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say

Woman- 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

Hello Vietnamman !

I had already heard the song " Don't cry Joni " .That is a sad song .I really feel sorry for Jimmy .I think he was not strong enough to face difficulties on his love with Joni .When he recognized that he cannot live without her ,it was so late .She had got married with John -his best friend .How paintful it is !!!

We don't have twice chance in our life so let's keep it firmly on our hand or we will regret like Jimmy in that song ! Right ?Vietnamman ?
