Come on Cherry, Cherry, you're still very young
And we've only just started having fun
I'm picking through, and I choose you
You're so cool,
No need to save yourself for someone else to come,

So we went, completely wild
We kicked over a city street light
And Saint Thomas was vandalized
And I'm sorry, but I'm not surpri-i-i-i-ised

Pick up the phone, pick up the phone.
Congratulations, I'm having visions of us
Breaking everything on our way out of town.
Were going places, you've never dream-ed of.

Oh Cherry, Cherry, I read your fortune
It says that you're too serious and such
But I like one thing, CHerry, you should understand
That nothing really matters very much.

So we went, completely wild.
We were married in the Vegas style
And our families were scandalized
Now I'm sorry but I'm not surpri-i-i-i-ised

Pick up the phone, pick up the phone.
Congratulations, I'm having visions of us
Breaking everything on our way out of town.
Were going places, you've never dream-ed of.

Yeah we started a fire inside a wooden truck
Painted the town til it was up in smoke
So tie a ribbon round it, let the fighters drown it
And we'll go down in the books. (oh oh oh)

Yeah we started the fire, it was burnin' up
Everywhere around us, take a photograph
If they ever found us, they'd have us surrounded
So pick up, you know you gotta pick it U-u-up

So pick it u-up.

Cherry, pick it up

Pick it u-u-up, oh, oh,

Pick up the phone, pick up the phone.
Congratulations, I'm having visions of us
Breaking everything on our way out of town.
Were going places, you've never dream-ed of.
