  • I never was one for talk
    I keep things to myself
    Let everyone ramble on
    When people get to reminiscing
    I'll always be the one to listen
    But now I need to find those missing words.
    I love Princess Olivia
    Can't speak, I slip into trivia.
    To know what you feel inside
    Is not enough, you've got
    To put it across with style
    The literati in their cellars
    Perform semantic tarantellas
    I wish I did it half as well as them
    I love Princess Olivia
    Can't speak, I slip into trivia.
    She's got long red hair
    Her nose up in the clouds
    Just how did she get up there
    She's frosty as the face of Phineas
    Leaves me feeling ignominious
    Why's she so continuously cool?
    I love Princess Olivia
    Can't speak, I slip into trivia.
    I love her.
    She may be large Writer/s: Albert Collins, Richard Penniman
