Roches – Pink Ballet Slippers lyrics

Pink ballet slippers
Two dollars for a pair
Must have been made
By the guy in the store
They're strange
On I don't care
I'm gonna buy them
They might be too small
Lately while dancing I fall

Sweet ballerina
Turns on her tiny toes
He lifts her up and carries her
How come I'm not one of those
I do my dancing in combat boots
I don't look good in a tu tu

O teacher
Can you help me
Get a kick out of these
Pink ballet slippers
Pink ballet slippers
I wear em to sleep
I wear em to dream

See you sew the elastic
Neatly to the side
Deep in a drawer bury them
These shoes you gotta hide
Only can wear em when nobody's home
Or when you're talking on the telephone

O teacher
Can you find me
Somewhere to be pretty
In my pink ballet slippers
Pink ballet slippers
I wear em to sleep
I wear em to dream
I wear em to sleep
