PRETTY AS YOU PLEASE
by Ray Rodgers

She was driving down my street one day,
just as pretty as you please.
Her eyes were shaded softly
though the sun was on her cheek.
She rolled up to my corner.
She slowed down to a stop.
I think I watched her change her mind
as she glanced across my yard.

My world was shaking.
It shook me to my knees.
My world was shaking
just as pretty as you please.

She rolled into the corner.
She rolled into the sun.
She rolled into a brand new world
where I was the lucky one.
The wind was blowing through her hair.
It fell across her chin.
I know you're not supposed to stare
but that's just what I did.

My world was shaking.
It shook me to my knees.
My world was shaking
just as pretty as you please.

Her tail lights called out to me
said “you better run.”
You're going to miss out on all that pleasure.
You're going to miss out on all that fun.
They rolled, and rolled and rolled and rolled
and rolled so far away.
I think they rolled right up to heaven.
Now, they wait outside the gate.

My world was shaking.
It shook me to my knees.
My world was shaking
just as pretty as you please
