I'll sing you a song,
Paint you a painting,
Dance you a dance
While you're waiting.

What shall it be,
Chocolate or soda ?
I'm having tea,
Do speak louder.

Are you hungry ?
Brown bread and treacle,
Apple maybe ?
I've a tree full.

What do you know ?
What can you tell me ?
Something to show
Or to sell me.

Ah, here he's coming now,
I'll say cheerio.
Someone to meet
And she's waiting so I'll go

    General Commentthis is a cute song. I can see the scene in my head with Donovan talking to this 'shy girl'..asking her questions and such, and she's just staring blankly at him.

    General CommentIt's a bitch when you meet a cute girl and find out she's got a boyfriend when talking to her, trying hard not to stumble over all the words that fill your head on that instant. That's what this song is about, I say.
