Preppy Boy

Album: Love Is Magic (2018)
  • He wore cuffed khakis, crisp and clean
    Brown top-siders
    And he doesn't use sunscreen
    Navy blue polo shirt
    While you're chasing that girl in the whale skirt

    I see you out there
    Playing lacrosse, I
    I know you wanna be the boss, and
    As far as I'm concerned you can, but
    You know, she'll never understand

    Come on now, preppy boy
    If you got an opening, then I am unemployed
    So sick and tired of waiting in line
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time

    He wore a candy striped button down
    He's got razor-white teeth
    They sparkle like a crown
    He's got highlights in his hair
    From the sun, of course
    I gave him my number
    So that after the divorce

    He could call me up
    If he wants to chat
    You know I waited so long
    Now I'm up to bat
    He's no Treat Williams, but neither am I
    It might be wishful thinkin', but you got to try, now

    Come on now, preppy boy
    If you got an opening, then I am unemployed
    So sick and tired of waiting in line
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time

    Come on now, preppy boy
    If you got an opening, then I am unemployed
    So sick and tired of waiting in line
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time

    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time
    Call me up if you're down, and you've got the time Writer/s: John Grant
