A Girlfriend's Neither Gotten nor Forgotten
|A girlfriend's neither gotten nor forgotten.|
She's never just a friend who is a girl.
She doesn't wear a nameplate or a flower.
You never can be certain that she's there.
You're going to have to jump right off a building
And probably break your ego and your neck.
Nine times out of ten you'll wish you'd vanished,
But one time out of ten--why, there she'll be!
A girlfriend isn't something you acquire.
A girlfriend is a person, not a thing.
And if you leap and land next to the right one,
She'll burn her image right into your heart.
