A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody

I have an ear for music,
And I have an eye for a maid.
I link a pretty girlie
With each pretty tune that's played.
They go together like sunny weather
Goes with the month of May!
I study girls and music,
So I'm qualified to say:

A pretty girl is like a melody,
That haunts you night and day,
Just like a strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start upon a marathon
And run around your brain.

You can't escape, she's in your memory,
By morning, night and noon,
She will leave you, and then,
Come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune!

A pretty girl is like a melody,
That haunts you night and day,
Just like a strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start upon a marathon
And run around your brain.

You can't escape, she's in your memory,
By morning, night and noon,
She will leave you, and then,
Come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune!
