Blue eyed Susans, standing in a domino line
Falling in and out of love all the time
They'll break your heart just to see a boy cry
ah but not me
I am a brown eyed loner, I march to my own drummer
I'm a piccolo owner and the labor of my mother's love
Honey you'd be a load off her mind

But with or without you
My only plan is to be free
With or without you
I'm still me
Ah

I'll join a band and sing like a canary
Get out of here and change my name to Cherry
And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
I am a keeper
Oh, I am a keeper baby
I am a keeper

Long stem roses, standing in a vase by my bed
Standing tall like the dreams in my head
I'm not gonna live in this house 'til I'm dead
I like you a lot 'cause you're different a little
You got answers to my riddles
Your daddy is a pistol and you are a son of a gun
I could be the daughter that he never wanted

But with or without you I'll buy a farm at the edge of the prairie
Live off the land and change my name to Cherry
And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby
I am a keeper

With or without you, my only plan is to be free
With or without you
Bye babe

I'll buy a sword and join the military
Cut my hair and change my name to Cherry
And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby
I am a keeper, oh, I am a keeper baby

I'm not one of those blue eyed Susans
Ha ah, I'm doing my own thing

I am a keeper
I am a keeper baby
I am a keeper
I am a keeper baby
I am a keeper
I am a keeper baby
