Lauren Bacall

When I was 12 years old
I fell in love with Lauren Bacall
I dreamed at night
I was black and white
and over 6 feet tall

I would touch the silver gown
she wore with elegance in "The Big Sleep"
I'd fantasize
those beautiful eyes
would get misty just for me

I loved Lauren Bacall
despite the bad reception
I pined for her voice
And I'd forgive her
even if she used deception

Because when you're 12 years old
and in love with Lauren Bacall
You don't know what love is
You have no idea at all.
