I really loved sweet Mary Lou
who sat beside me in grade two.
Her eyes were big and bright, bright green.
She always smiled — was never mean.
She never noticed me at all,
cause I was short and she was tall,
and so I thought I’d write a note.
I thought real hard and then I wrote.
I folded it and had to smile.
I looked at her across the aisle,
and threw the note right on her book.
She opened it and had a look.
She started laughing at the note,
at the message that I wrote,
and as she laughed, I played it cool,
cause after all, we were in school.
She couldn’t stop laughing for a while
and on my face, I wore a smile,
cause in that note to Mary Lou,
in great big letters, I wrote, “BOO!”
