Tomboy
Tomboy, Tomboy, nuthin' but a Tomboy,
Tomboy, Tomboy, nuthin' but a Tomboy . . .
 
When we were small, I used to call you "Tomboy"
The years have flown since you were known as "Tomboy"
No made-up face, no fancy lace, pigtails in your hair,
It seems like only yesterday, 
You tagged behind me everywhere!Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
 
I never thought that I'd get caught by "Tomboy" ( Tomboy! )
The pink chiffon worked magic on my "Tomboy" ( Tomboy! )
An' now I find, I've been blind,
You were always on my mind, 
Before I'm through, you'll say I do,
An' "Tomboy" will be mine!
 
Tomboy, Tomboy, nuthin' but a Tomboy,
Tomboy, Tomboy, nuthin' but a Tomboy . . .

No made-up face, no fancy lace, pigtails in your hair,
It seems like only yesterday, 
You tagged behind me everywhere!
 
I never thought that I'd get caught by "Tomboy" ( Tomboy! )
The pink chiffon worked magic on my "Tomboy" ( Tomboy! )
An' now I find, I've been blind,
You were always on my mind, 
Before I'm through . . . 
You'll say I do . . .
An' "Tomboy" will be mine!
Tomboy!
