A ROSE AND A BABY RUTH

Do-do-doodoo
Do-do-doodoo

We had a quarrel
A teenage quarrel
Now I'm as blue
As I know how to be

I can't call you
On the phone
I can't even
See you at your home

So I'm sending
You this present
Just to prove
That I'm telling the truth

Dear I believe
You won't laugh when you receive
This rose and a Baby Ruth

Do-do-do-doodoo
Do-do-do-doodoo
Do-do-do-doodoo

I could have sent you
An orchid of some kind
But that's all I had in
My jeans at the time

But when we grow up
Someday I'll show up
Just to prove
I was telling the truth

I'll kiss you too
Then I'll hand to you
This rose and a Baby Ruth
