a casual look, a little ring
can reveal just what you think
don’t be shy, don’t even sigh
for you are my guy, you are my guy.
oh soldier boy, when you proposed
i said no, your face just froze
you know i love you but i’m so young
can’t marry no one, can’t marry no one.
darling can’t you see that i’m going overseas
for two, three, four years
don’t know how long it will be
so hear, hear my plea and come marry, marry me
before it’s too late.
and with a smile, we walked down the aisle
me in my wedding dress a vision of happiness
and just to think all it took was a casual look.
