A TRUE VALENTINE'S DAY STORY

When I was just a young chap
of 16 years or so,
I had a gorgeous girlfriend
The kind you'd love to know.

I didn't have much money then
but I'd take her to a show
just at the local movie house
and then for a soda we'd go.

Then came the famous Valentine's Day 
And I thought of things to say.
I wasn't much on words at that time
So I presumed a gift to be just fine.
I searched the corner drugstore
 to find a gift divine.

But the only thing that I could buy,
no matter how hard I would try
was a blue bottle of cologne 
they had there on display.
So, I put up all my money to pay
for some "Evening in Paris" cologne spray.

My girlfriend was so surprised 
that she was prone to say,
"Thank you, my dear Lenny,
you've made my Valentine's Day."
And I just beamed and smiled away.
