While the Mandolins Played - © 2020 Pete Silva/Step Alive Productions

Verse One:
I can still see the party lights strung across the beams
That squeaky Dutch door always gave away our schemes
The hay on the floor ready for a step or two
While the mandolin played a song for me and you

Verse Two:
Pete: I remember you twirling in that pretty summer dress
Paula: I remember the ice cream you bought and made such a mess
We never doubted something would carry us through
While the mandolin played a song for me and you

Bridge:
Pete: I'm just a boy in love with a girl
An old memory asking to dance
Paula: I'm just a girl in love with a boy
Trying to cleverly say, yes he can

Verse Three:
Now the summer's gone and the swallows left the nest
I know they’re coming back, but I don't know when
You and I always knew love would carry us through
While the mandolin played a song for me and you
