Put your pretty dress on
It's time for you to go to the dance
Tie your hair in ribbons and lace
And wear pearls round your neck
And all the pretty princes will see you
All the pretty princes will see you
Some day
Some day

Put your red boots on
It's time for you to walk home from school
Every one will laugh
They'll point fingers at you
They'll be cruel
But cover up your ears and don't listen
Because you'll know much better than them
Some day
Some day

And they'll wave to you
And they'll wave to you

Put your red coat on
And walk with a light in the woods
If it gets dark don't get scared
There's so much waiting for you
Cover up your tears and don't show them
Cause you'll know much better than them
Some day
Some day

And they'll wave to you
And they'll wave to you
And they'll wave to you
And they'll wave to you

Cause they don't see you like I see you
If they did, they'd see
The nice litte girl whose
Grown up to become homecoming queen

Put your pretty dress on
Put your red boots on

And they'll wave to you
And they'll wave to you
And we'll wave to you
And we'll wave to you

Put your pretty dress on
Put your red boots on
Put your red coat on
Put your pretty dress on
Put your pretty dress on
Put your red coat on
Put your red boots on
Put you pretty dress on
