It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls
From the 1950's
Wearing those big pearls
I'll cook you breakfast
Coffee on your desk, yes
I might burn your toast,
But baby I'm still the bestest

It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls on the colored TV
It was a new world
The The Dick Van Dyke Show
We're Cher and Bono
The way I sing 'I got you babe'
Makes you say "Oh no"
Cause you're the class president
Without Jackie O
And I'm singing happy birthday
Like Marilyn Monroe

(One)
This is not a school girl crush
(No, two)
This is not a puppy love,(uh-un)
It's the real thing
When you told me you loved me
Promise I'll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby
(One)
This is not a school girl thing
(No, two)
What about the diamond ring?
Everyone knows I'm like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it baby

It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls
Calender pin-up queen and platinum girls
I'll do my summer pose
Golden sand between my toes
You can pack my favorite snacks of
Veuve Clicquot with Ho-Ho's
You're everybody's hero and you're hitting it home
While I'm singing for the soldiers like Marilyn Monroe

(One)
This is not a school girl crush
(No, two)
This is not a puppy love,(uh-un)
It's the real thing
When you told me you loved me
Promise I'll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby
(One)
This is not a school girl thing
(No, two)
What about the diamond ring? (uh-un)
Everyone knows I'm like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it baby, baby, baby

And if I call you on the telephone
I'm not overdose
Cause I'm strong, but I'm lonely like Marilyn Monroe

This is not a school girl crush
This is not a puppy love,
It's the real thing
When you told me you loved me
What ever happened to hold m and trust me babe

(One)
This is not a school girl crush
(No, two)
This is not a puppy love,(uh-un)
It's the real thing
When you told me you loved me
Promise I'll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby
(One)
This is not a school girl thing
(No, two)
What about the diamond ring? (uh-un)
Everyone knows I'm like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it baby

It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It's not puppy love,
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

    Lyric CorrectionThese are pretty messed up...I'm not 100% on all of them but this is what I hear:

    It's not puppy love
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love
    It's not puppy love
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love

    You make me want to be like one of those girls
    From the 1950s wearing those big pearls
    I'll cook you breakfast
    Coffee on your desk, yes?
    I might burn your toast but baby
    I'm still the bestest

    It's not puppy love
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love
    It's not puppy love
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love

    You make me want to be like one of those girls
    On the color TV, it was a new world
    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    We're Cher and Bono
    The way I sing "I Got You Babe"
    Makes you say "Oh no"

    'Cause you're the class president without Jackie O.
    While I'm singing "Happy Birthday" like Marilyn Monroe

    (One)
    This is not a school girl crush
    (No, two)
    This is not puppy love
    (Uh uh!)
    It's the real thing and you told me you loved me
    Promise I'll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby

    (One)
    This is not a school girl thing
    (No, two)
    What about the diamond ring?
    Everyone knows I'm like Jessica Rabbit
    I'm your leading lady I've gotta have it, baby

    It's not puppy love,
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love
    It's not puppy love,
    Puppy, puppy, puppy love

    You make me want to be like one of those girls
    Calendar pin-up queen with platinum curls
    I'll do my summer pose
    Golden sand between my toes
    You can pack my favorite snack of
    Veuve Clicquot with Ho-Ho's

    You're everybody's hero and you're hitting it home
    While I'm singing for the soldiers like Marilyn Monroe

    (One)
    This is not a school girl crush

    'Cause I'm strong but I'm lonely like Marilyn Monroe

    This is not a school girl crush
    This is not puppy love
    It's the real thing and you told me you loved me
    Whatever happened to hold me and trust me, baby?

    (One)
    This is not a school girl crush
    (No, two)
    This is not puppy love
    (Uh uh!)
    It's the real thing and you told me you loved me

    Lyric CorrectionVeuve Clicquot is really expensive brand of champagne and Jessica Rabbit is a voluptuous cartoon rabbit from the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" The "Promise I'll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby" lyric is another Marilyn Monroe reference. Bobby is probably referring to Bobby Kennedy and I think Arthur is referring to Marilyn's third husband, playwright Arthur Miller.

    I think the whole song is about a relationship akin to Marilyn Monroe's supposed relationship with President John F. Kennedy; the guy in the song has all the power and she's fascinated by this and wants him to love her like a woman, not like a schoolgirl. She's trying to prove that she's a woman to I think both the listener and to the guy ("It's not puppy love; this is not a schoolgirl thing;" etc.).
