It was hopeless if I ran. we
were standing head to head
Then she grabbed me in her hand and turned to me and said
"I wish you wouldn't run so fast. I think you're kind of cute"
"Not only that," she whispered low, "I think that I love you"
"You are the apple of my eye," she said, and then she gave me a wink
"Sweet as a cherry pie," she said, though maybe she Just blinked
Then she kissed me on the face and I know that I turned red
But you know what they say, hey. "Better red than dead"
Well It happened oh, so fast.
it sounded oh, so weird
And though her mouth had a funny taste, well. it was nothing as I feared
You know I always did like blue eyed girls --she's the perfect one for me
I married her and you know she even likes poetry
And I see now what I feared was what I did not know
And I guess you can love someone with warts upon their nose.
'Cause I live p on the mountain now, bordered by the sea
With a half a dozen cyclops kids. who almost look like me
