Sweet Sarah Jean

Your face was so fair.  Your hair dark as it dared.  Your eyes were so blue.  We knew you hung the moon! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!

There’s a time for a friend, one to trust and depend.  Be loyal and steadfast, especially within! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!

If you wander don’t stay.  Take the path narrow and straight.  Run to begin with your back to the wind! Sweet treasure of mine.  You hold the key with just your smile.  Your hopes and dreams will keep for a while! Sweet Sarah Jean, there’s a world for you to see!  There’s a sun and a moon, mountains a mile high, rivers that run deep and wide, and there’s stars in the sky!
