I'm a Keeper

  • Blue eyed Susans, standing in a domino line
    Falling in and out of love all the time
    They'll break your heart just to see a boy cry
    ah but not me
    I am a brown eyed loner, I march to my own drummer
    I'm a piccolo owner and the labor of my mother's love
    Honey you'd be a load off her mind

    But with or without you
    My only plan is to be free
    With or without you
    I'm still me
    Ah

    I'll join a band and sing like a canary
    Get out of here and change my name to Cherry
    And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
    I am a keeper
    Oh, I am a keeper baby
    I am a keeper

    Long stem roses, standing in a vase by my bed
    Standing tall like the dreams in my head
    I'm not gonna live in this house 'til I'm dead
    I like you a lot 'cause you're different a little
    You got answers to my riddles
    Your daddy is a pistol and you are a son of a gun
    I could be the daughter that he never wanted

    But with or without you I'll buy a farm at the edge of the prairie
    Live off the land and change my name to Cherry
    And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
    I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby
    I am a keeper

    With or without you, my only plan is to be free
    With or without you
    Bye babe

    I'll buy a sword and join the military
    Cut my hair and change my name to Cherry
    And every night I'll thank holy Mother Mary
    I am a keeper ah, I am a keeper baby
    I am a keeper, oh, I am a keeper baby

    I'm not one of those blue eyed Susans
    Ha ah, I'm doing my own thing

    I am a keeper
    I am a keeper baby
    I am a keeper
    I am a keeper baby
    I am a keeper
    I am a keeper baby Writer/s: AARON HENNINGSEN, BRIAN HENNINGSEN, CLARA HENNINGSEN, KIMBERLY PERRY, NEIL PERRY, REID PERRY
