"Blue Eyes" as written by and Shel Silverstein....
Boy: I see you're all along sittin' in the bar.
Can I sit down beside ya, Blue Eyes?

Girl: Well, you see my boyfriend just went into the wash room
And he'll be right back
And he's seven feet tall
And he always carries a gun.

Boy: Oh! Well, if I beat up your boyfriend
And I take away his gun
And I sit down beside ya,
Can I buy you a drink, Blue Eyes?

Girl: I'm drinking Piper Heidsick champagne
That costs thirty-five dollars a bottle.

Boy: Oh! Well, if I beat up your boyfriend
And I take away his gun
And I sit down beside ya
And I guy ya a bottle of thirty-five dollar Piper Heidsick champagne,
Can I drive ya home, Blue Eyes?

Girl: I live in Philadelphia.

Boy: Oh! Well, if I beat up your boyfriend
And I take away his gun
And I sit down beside ya
And I guy ya a bottle of thirty-five dollar Piper Heidsick champagne,
And I drive you to Philadelphia,
Can I walk you to the door, Blue Eyes?

Girl: There's a big moat around my house
And it's full of crocodiles and alligators
And there's a terrible undertow.

Boy: Oh! Well, if I swim across the moat
And I avoid the crocodiles and the alligators
And I don't get sunk by the undertow,
Will you ask me to come in, Blue Eyes?

Girl: Well, you see...
It's very late
And my mother is probably waiting up for me
And I think she washed the floor
And it's covered with newspapers
And besides, we got this big dog that
Whenever a stranger comes in,
He starts to bark and bites you,
And my father's worried about paying off the mortgage on the house
Which cost five thousand, three hundred twenty-two dollars
And it's very late
And I've got to wash my hair
And I have to get up early for work.

Boy: You really don't want me to take you home, do ya?

Girl: Well, you see it's very late
And my mother's probably waiting up for me.

Boy: You see, you don't really want me to take you home.

Girl: Well, you see it's very late.

Boy: You don't really like me, do ya?
You really don't care about me.

Girl: Well, you see it's very late.

Boy: Never mind! Forget it!
