Derailers – Raspberry Beret lyrics

I was working part-time at a five and dime my boss was Mr Mcgee
He told me many times he didn't like my style said I was too leisurely
Well I was busy doing something close to nothing but different than the day before
That's when I saw her ooh Lord I saw her she came in through the outdoor
Wearing that raspberry beret the kind you buy at a second-hand store
Raspberry beret and when the weather was warm she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret I think I love her
[ guitar ]
Built like she was she had the nerve to ask me if I planned to do her any harm
So I put her on the back of my motorcycle and took her down to the farm
Now overcast days never turned me on but something bout the clouds and her mixed
You know that little girl she wasn't very bright but she knew how to get a kiss
Wearing that raspberry beret...
[ guitar - bass ]
The horses wonder who you are
Something about thunder and lightning you feel like a movie star
Now I heard it said the first time ain't the greatest
Ah but I'm here to tell ya I would not change a stroke
Cause you know I'm the most
Especially with the honey that come in the door
Wearing that raspberry beret...
I think I love her
