my my my

i was seven and you were nine

I looked at you like the stars that shine, in the sky

the pretty lights

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us

Growing up and falling in love and our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes and said oh my my my

Take me back to the house in the backyard tree

Said you’d beat me up, you were bigger than me
You never did, you never did

Take me back when our world was one block wide

I dared you to kiss me and ran when you tried

Just two kids, you and I…

Oh my my my my


Well, I was twenty-four when suddenly
I wasn’t that little girl you used to see

But your eyes still shined like pretty lights

And our daddies used to joke about the two of us

They never believed we’d really fall in love

And our mamas smiled and rolled their eyes

And said oh my my my…
