Its all alot of oysters and no pearls,
But i recall the little red haired girl,
How I used to sit on this bench in school,
And stare at her across the playground,

All i wanted was to sit next to her,
Talk to her just be with her,
That wasn't asking too much was it,
But it never happened,

Then she moved away,
And I don't even know where she lives,
Still got my lunchbox just in case,
I even saved her a sandwich and a drink,

I'm older now and my body feels strange today,
Sitting here in the grounds we used to play,
And I'm staring straight ahead at a red brick wall,
Instead of my red haired girl,

Still got that pencil she once dropped,
With her teeth marks on the top,
She nibbles on her pencil,
Oh thank god,
She's human after all,

But then she moved away,
And I don't even know where she lives,
Still got my lunchbox just in case,
I even saved her a sandwich and a drink,

I miss the little red haired girl,
I miss the little red haired girl,
Why can't I talk to the red haired girl?

Well everything about her I recall,
But i can't bring myslef to draw her,
I know what kind of laces tied up her shoes,
I just dont want to tell you all,

And everything we look at from afar,
Like the moon and like the stars,
We could just reach out and touch,
If we weren't afraid so much,

Should have got up to talk to you,
If I could only put my flask, down,

But then she moved away,
And I don't even know where she lives,
Still got my lunchbox just in case,
I even saved her a sandwich and a drink,

I miss the little red haired girl,
I miss the little red haired girl,
Why can't I talk to the red haired girl?
