The Twinkle In Your Eye

The Twinkle In Your Eye

There is a twinkle in your eye girl.

It is making your face shine bright too.

As you strut by working those heels

I have to say there is something so

new and special about you today.

Come close and whisper into my ears.

I promise you that I will not share.

Oh dear, that is such wonderful news.

For I think that there are few sounds

sweeter than the patter of little feet.

Oops! Did I really say that out aloud?

There goes my promise not to share.
