Song Description

In this song, its the woman who says the relationship is moving way too slow and she wants the guy to get with the program. A surprising twist, perhaps, particularly given this song is set in Manhattan in the early 20th Century. You can even hear the bell from the trolley car ringing!

Lyrics

We're Moving Too Slow
Intro
When we met at Lester's party
We had sparks right from the start
It's the oldest of love stories
Cupid's shot right thru my heart
But that was 7 months ago
And I don't want this to fail
Its springtime now already
But we're moving like a snail

We're moving too slow
Let's speed things up
Patience I've got, but
Enough is enough
Don't close yourself off
Just let me into your heart

It's a modern world now
What's holdings things down?
Even trolley cars
Move faster through town
Don't close yourself off
Just let me into your heart

(bridge)
It's a slow train to nowhere
We don't seem to move
Other riders have departed
Yet, We're stuck in an old groove
We just need a head of steam
To pick up the pace
Let's take a stop for downtown
And get back in the race

Instrumental break

(repeat bridge melody with these new lyrics)
We're walking hand in hand
down Fifth Avenue
Past Rockefeller Center
On a Sunday afternoon
I've made up my mind
You're the one for me
Nothing holds me back, but
But don't you see-eee, modulate

Instrumental break

It's a modern world now
What's holdings things down?
Even trolley cars
Move faster through town
Don't close yourself off
Just let me into your heart

I don't understand
What's holding you back?
We're way past our intros
No need to backtrack

We're moving too slow
Let's speed things up
Let's speed things up
Let's speed things up
