  • Seongah and Jimmy,
    Seongah and Jimmy
    They found each other
    Downtown in Brooklyn
    She's from Korea, he's from Long Island
    They found each other,
    And they discovered love

    Seongah and Jimmy,
    Seongah and Jimmy
    Both have a sister,
    Both have a brother
    She learns her English
    He learns Korean
    They learn that love is spoken in many ways

    Seongah, how close can two lovers be?
    Each day's a promise I'll never let you go
    Seongah, how long must two lovers dream?
    My head is reeling, feelings I've never known

    Work in the city, go there together
    They take the subway, all kinds of weather
    Friends in her office know her as Sarah,
    Seongah and Jimmy work for a better day

    Seongah and Jimmy,
    Seongah and Jimmy
    Live near each other, out there in Green Point
    Move in together, promise forever
    She cooks Korean, he likes Korean too

    Seongah, don't be impatient with me
    With you beside me, nowhere that I can't go
    Seongah, dream how you want love to be
    And I'll make a promise I'll try to make it so

    She wants her Masters, he helps her study
    He has a toothache, she finds a dentist
    He says I love you, she knows he means it
    She says Saranghae, he knows she means it too

    I hear music in the air
    People dancing in the street
    Loves in blossom everywhere
    Even strangers start to greet
    Love happens in Brooklyn
    I live there long ago, and nothing's changed
    Brought flowers, she took them
    They laughed together in the pouring rain, de de de de de de de de de de de

    Oh yeah
    Seongah and Jimmy,
    Seongah and Jimmy
    Soon they get married, in came their families
    Her's from Korea, his from Long Island
    They stayed together, and made a joyful day
    Seongah and Jimmy,
    They had so much to say
    Seongah and Jimmy,
    They found a better way Writer/s: NEIL DIAMOND
