Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree
Swaying in a summer breeze,
You'll never change what has to be.
Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree.
Sometimes I don't know what I said till I did,
I want to be the father of your kid.
Dragonfly he sleeps till dawn,
I knew I'd be here when love has gone.
Crystal ball is what I wish for you,
Get it straight, I love the both of you.
Someone's goin' through a cold turkey.
Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree.
I give your baby a contact high
I love another is what I sigh -ha-
Looks like rain, I do declare,
Your baby wants to take my chocolate eclair.
I couldn't cry, I could not laugh,
Incident about a silken scarf.
I know what a jealous trip can be.
Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree.
Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree
Swaying in a summer breeze,
You'll never change what has to be,
Girl ain't nothing but a willow tree.
Weep for me, willow tree,
Weep for me, willow tree.
