Caroline laughs, and it's raining all day
Loves to be one of the girls
She lives in the place in the side of our lives
Where nothing is ever put straight

She turns herself 'round
And she smiles and she says
"This is it, that's the end of the joke"
And loses herself in her
Dreaming and sleep, and her
Lovers walk through in their coats

Pretty in pink, isn't she?
Pretty in pink, isn't she?

All of her lovers all
Talk of her notes and the
Flowers that they never sent
And wasn't she easy
Isn't she pretty in pink?

The one who insists he was
First in the line is the
Last to remember her name
He's walking around in this
Dress that she wore
She is gone, but the
Joke's the same

Pretty in pink, isn't she?
Pretty in pink, isn't she?

Caroline talks to you
Softly sometimes, she says,
"I love you" and "Too much"
She doesn't have anything
You want to steal
Well, nothing you can touch

She waves
She buttons your shirt
The traffic is waiting outside
She hands you this coat
She give you her clothes
These cars collide

Pretty in pink, isn't she?
Pretty in pink, isn't she?

    My InterpretationI kinda feel like Caroline is that strange unpopular girl who everyone knows but no one bothers to talk to, unless they're trying to get into her pants, or making fun of her. shes probably not super confident. but isnt she pretty in pink? but she'd never admit it. she'd never wear something so bright and confident. "she laughs and its raining all day" she never does anything right and shes "in the side of our lives where nothing is ever put straight". She tries to stand up for herself, but she wants to be nice and likeable, so she "smiles and says this is it that's the end of the joke". She might be unhappy, and is so desperately hoping to be liked that she doesn't bother to pretend to have standards. She sleeps with whoever makes her feel pretty, even if they do make fun of her behind her back, because "wasn't she easy" and they all feel a little silly, but cocky, because of "the flowers that they never sent". i think that eventually, because she wasn't taken seriously, and because "the one who insists he was first in the line is the last to remember her name" and they're always making fun of her, "walking around in the dress that she wore". i think that when she "loses herself in her dreaming and sleep" and because people who are on the edge give away their belongings, "she hands you this coat and she gives you her clothes" and "they talk of her notes". "her lovers walk through in their coats" because you wear nice clothes and dress coats to a funeral. thats why they finally see her being pretty in pink.
