Oh you're a precious little pearl,
But tell me true now, have you ever had a care in the world?
So tell me what's it all about?

You say oh, you're so uptight,
Well you'll never be so right.

Oh you can cry yourself dry,
But I'd be surprised if you can muster up a single crocodile.
You'll never be the hopeless child,

Throw caution to the wind,
Forgive yourself your sins,
And don't you know, you really are the sweetest thing.

There isn't heart enough in you,
Do you no longer care or feel that you have nothing left to prove?
Oh tell me that it isn't true.

I wanted to tell you,
I that I used to admire you,
Oh you know you don't mean that I never cared,
No I never cared for you,
But I used to read about you and you offered me youth.

Throw caution to the wind,
And don't you know, you really are the sweetest thing.
