The Green-Eyed Girl

I saw her standing all aloneAnd I said, 'my heart has surely flown' She turned and smiled and I said 'oh my I think I'm gonna die.'

Eyes were green and sparkling Against a flaming red And I said 'better check this further Before I lose my head.'

In a flash of a dream, then, I ran my hands Through the thickness of her hair And when I waked I had the shakes Because the dream was rare, so rare.

Well, I caught my breath, and ambled over Wanting to know if I'm alive or dead Hands shaking, knees knocking Double-tread without a dread.

The red I caressed was satin with a sheen And the green, twin pools of cool But when I touched her cheek so fair I knew I was a gone dude.

Green, green eyes and flaming hair With a smile that caught me unaware I wasn't cautious when I saw her there But caution isn't fun to do.
