Mecca Lyrics

Artist: Gene Pitney


(opening instrumental--chiefly Indian fakir's flute)

I live on the West side, she lives on the East side of the stree-ee-eet
And though they say that East is East and West is West
And never the twain shall meet
Each morning I face her window and pray that our love can be
'cause that brownstone house where my baby lives
Is Mecca (Mecca, Mecca, Mecca) Mecca (Mecca, Mecca) to me-e-e-e-e-e.

Oh she's my dream goddess and her ruby lips are so div-i-ine
And though her folks say we're too young to know of love
I worship at her shrine
Each morning I face her window and pray that our love can be
'cause that brownstone house where my baby lives
Is Mecca (Mecca, Mecca, Mecca) Mecca (Mecca, Mecca) to me-e-e-e-e-e.

(instrumental interlude-chiefly guitar)

Each morning I face her window and pray that our love can be
'cause that brownstone house where my baby lives
Is Mecca (Mecca, Mecca, Mecca) Mecca (Mecca, Mecca) to me-e-e-e-e-e.

(ending instrumental-chiefly Indian fakir's flute)

I like this song since I first heard it long ago. I wonder what Islamic people would say, about the use of the word Mecca. It doesn't take much to offend anyone today, even with an innocent love song.

I have also liked this song and many of Gene Pitney's other songs. Coincidentally, I also wondered if the use of "mecca" was considered offensive so I looked up the meaning of the word in the dictionary as I believed that it meant more than just the city in Saudi Arabia. Mecca is a "Goal of aspiration, place revered as a birthplace of a faith or policy." It fits the song as a goal of aspiration.
