C o t t o n : Y o u

Let me show you
how to do a cats cradle
As we talk about nothing
& maybe laugh a litlle

Teddy hugs
and puppy dog caresses
let me hold you
and fulfill my wishes
of comfort and fluff
when I've had more then enough
of all that negative harsh stuff
(you see I really am not tough)

I love the way
youre soft all over
and prettty right on the face
You're the perfect cushion
for them really Hard days
Even better
than a billion pillow embrace
