Karoline

Backwards K and/or child’s handwriting.

Smile – like a supanova.
Hair – a golden waterfall.
– – a petite blonde newcomer,
– – an’ she’s me high tall.

No plain Jane,
girlish frame.
What’s your sign? What’s your name?
Hypnotised I hear

Karoline – yeah you look so pretty.
Karoline – oh you look so fine.
Karoline – lemme hold your hand my
Sweet Karoline.

Warm – as the glow of topaz.
Grace – like a future Queen.
– – I was a roguish toerag.
– – she’s my childhood dream.

Our first break,
love/heartache,
we steal away I feel her shake.
No one’s here, we’re alone.
Whistle blow!
We should go.
Kiss me quick, no one will know.
She closed her e-y-y-y-y-es.

CHORUS

BREAK

Smooth – as a baby’s bottom.
Hard – to pull my eyes away.
– – many a lovelife lesson,
– on a school’s out day.

Kiss me quick: a little peck.
No one’s here: behind the shed.
Look in her eyes and sing

Karoline – yeah you look so pretty.
Karoline – oh you look so fine.
Karoline – lemme hold your hand my
Sweet Karoline.
Karoline – yeah you look so pretty.
Karoline – oh you look so fine.
Karoline – I’m gonna take your hand my
Karoline – shame we-were only nine.

– – taught a lovelife lesson,
– – x like a super-model,
Soft – the voice of an angel.


Soft – as a baby’s bottom.
Hard – to pull my eyes away.
– – taught ourselves a lesson,
– on a school’s out day.

Nose – the cutest little button.
Eyes – the greenest baby-blues.
– – aimin’ to be someone,
– – I-hope we make it too/two.
