play pretty little feet

from The Set That Wasn't

all you got to do is sit on your stool and drink your latte down
watch all the boys peaking in the windows
checking you up and down
all you got to do is give a little leg and they will walk you a mile
all you got to do is guess what they want
and put that on for a while

but who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet baby
now that you're on your own
who's gonna kiss your sweet sweet lips
and carry your baby home
who'd gonna love that sweet sad song
playing inside your mind
who's gonna hear your hopes and fears and kiss you baby
kiss you one more time

how many years holding back tears raising that baby girl
nurse and cradle bedtime fables
rocking her little world
and who was the man holding your hand taking you for his bride
silence and grace smile on your face
as you bury yourself alive

and who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet baby
now that you're on your own
who's gonna kiss your sweet sweet lips
and carry your baby home
who'd gonna love that sweet sad song
playing inside your mind
who's gonna hear your hopes and fears and kiss you baby
kiss you one more time

everyone loves you everyone wants you now that you're almost free
everyone tells you you're beautiful baby
is that so hard to believe
so many colors so many flavors in your ice cream store
everyone wants to be your free scoop baby
come on taste just a little more

kiss you one more time
kiss you one more time
kiss you kiss you
gonna kiss you one more time
