You are my vanilla icecream
in a root beer float,
classic, sweet, you never go out of style.
You are my flamingo,
a pink diamond in a sea of palm trees.
You are my red rose in a jar of water,
the beauty to my beast.
You are my brooch,
full of light and close to my heart,
classic, sweet, you never go out of style
like vanilla icecream in a root beer float.
