Peach Perfume

Pretty Woman


Walking by she smiles at me
Peach perfume flows in her wake
Right then I fell in love with her
And already felt heartache

She’s the boss’s pretty daughter
Me? Just his man and driver
She smiles at all opportunities
I feel like a ship wrecked survivor

My boss told me he was pleased in me
That I stood tall and never gave in
He wanted his daughter to understand
She couldn’t get everything on a whim

The big surprise he gave me that night
Involved my caring and heartache
He’d been watching me for several years
Wanting to call me son for his sake
