We were walking down the street, my little girly and me

On a pleasant day in June when it was all su-nny

She had a little pink umbrella that bumped against her knee

I said, “Girl, it’s freakin’ hot! It don’t even look rain-y!”

She smiled as she opened it so I could see

She said, “Baby, you’re so dumb! It’s just to COVER me!”
