Red Velvet Box  by Krista Detor

Go on and make it a heart when you’re thinking of me
Wrap it up in cotton candy like the jack a dandy
At the carnival by the sea

Oh, make it a heart when the snow starts to Fall
Take the bow from the gown when we were out on the town
Champagne kisses and all

In the red velvet box, baby, box, baby
Make my wishes come true
Oh, make it heart, baby, heart -
The one that belongs to you
Baby, make it a heart 'neath the sycamore tree
Swinging on the garden gate when the night was getting late
And we had no place to be

All I want is a heart when the noon bell rings
If you give me your heart, baby,
I will never, ever need another thing

Cause you know that I’ve been good, baby, good, baby
Nobody better than me
I got a star by my name
Nobody else the same for you will ever be

I’ve emptied out my pockets for some scrap remaining
Tossed it all out like the old refraining
Pitter patter of the matter, settled up with the Maitre-D

I’ll make my way, no no, no, don’t you worry
Cab’s out front and he’s in a hurry
Knows I got date underneath a sycamore tree

Cause all the boys that I knew with bourbon pie and money, too -
Sugar plums nice and sweet. I left 'em standing on the street
Cause they got nothing on you

And in the red velvet box, baby, box, baby
Maybe a sweet little ring
Oh if you give me your heart
I will never ever ever need another thing

Oh in the red velvet box, baby, box, baby
Maybe a sweet little ring
Oh if you give me your heart
I'll never ever ever never need another thing
