My Connie—

My Connie
How many times
Did we try
To beat each other
Into grandma and grandpa’s
Car?

Yackity-yack
Wackin’ a ball
Torn between two lovers
Playin’ the field
Havin’ a ball

Playing Romeo and Juliet
With a Ladder in a run down
T’ flats apartment complex
Sneaking out—

Gotta have them Dittos
One pair for each day
Making her own dresses
Stylin’ in the 70’s
Del Amo Mall RAT

Tellin’ them like it was
You are the best
At being…
I wish I could have told ya
What I wanted to

So many times I was
Just so darned proud!
You hit the long drives—
Sent them soarin’
Flyin’

My Connie—
