A pretty little redhead
With playful blue eyes
She asked me for a dolly
One that wets and one that cries.
Then she hugged me tight and ran to play
And I stood looking after
Went to the store and bought her the best
And she loved it everafter.

She holds my heart in her hand
She dances joy into my life
She has my picture in a hundred dollar locket
Oh, her love is burning a hole in my pocket.

She asked me next for a pony
One she could ride and love and pet.
Her eyes sparkled so much I went right out
And bought the nicest one I could get.
So I moved us out to the country
Where her pony could live and run
I watched her play with it for hours
And ride off into the setting sun.

She conveys her love with her eyes
Like a butterfly flutters my heart
She has my picture in a different locket
Oh, her love is burning a hole in my pocket.

Her pony got traded for a corvette
Her clothes were the trendiest she could get
Her hair was one hundred forty-nine
And she was all mine
To watch grow and learn and dream
Till the day I found my picture in the garbage
And my eyes swelled up with a gleam.

She left in the middle of the night
She left a note that I might read
“You gave me all I wanted
Your money was always there
But I really needed hugs and kisses
And your shoulder to dry my tears.
Now I’m going to find out
What life’s all about
Thank you for all of these years.”

Her love was all that I had to live on
And I stare blankly now that she’s gone
I took off her desk the locket
And died with it still in my pocket.
