Colorway: Anybody Seen My Baby. Another favorite tune from the Stones, represented in Greens, Purples, and Blues! This was on their 1997 CD: Bridges To Babylon.

She confessed her love to me, Then she vanished On the breeze
Trying to hold on to that, Was just impossible.
She was more than beautiful, Closer to ethereal
With a kind of down to earth flavor.
Close my eyes, it's three in the afternoon
Then I, I realize that she's really gone for good.
--- Anybody seen my baby; Anybody seen her around?
Love has gone and made me blind; I've looked but I just can't find
She has gotten lost in the crowd. ---
I was flippin' magazines, in that place on Mercer Street
When I thought I spotted her getting on a motor bike looking rather lady like;
Didn't she just give me a wave?
Salty tears, it's three in the afternoon
Has she disappeared, is she really gone for good?
--- Anybody seen my baby; Anybody seen her around?
If I just close my eyes, I reach out and touch the prize,
Anybody seen her around? ---
--- Anybody seen my baby; Anybody seen her around?
If I just close my eyes, I reach out and touch the prize,
Anybody seen her around? ---
Lost, lost and never found; I must have called her a thousand times.
Sometimes I think she's just in my imagination; Lost in the crowd.
