The Carter family lived next door for almost fourteen years, With Gwen and I inseparable from rag dolls through brassieres Then Gwen began to bore me

With her giggles and her fears The day the Carter's moved away I had to fake my tears Ohhhhhhhh I told new friends Gwen Carter had become a silly pest And then I found I missed her More than I'd ever guessed Grandma used to nag at me To straighten up my spine To act respectful and read good books To take care of what was mine I hated being criticized and asking her permission So what if her advise was wise, It always hurt to listen Ohhhhhhhh, I didn't cry when Granny died She made me so depressed And then I found I missed her More than I'd ever guessed You used to make me moan in bed But that can't be enough My friends complained your jokes were crude Your manners were too rough Don't know just what I wanted, But I know I wanted more. Someone smooth, presentable, To blend with my decor Ohhhhhhhhh, And now at night, I think of how you grinned when you undressed And I find I miss you More than I'd ever had guessed
