Scott Forrest of Rochester, VT
To Rachel Brewster
My girl calls me handsome, gives me kisses oh so true,she's always there to show she cares, she holds me when I'm blue. That's Rachel. Rachel.
My girl sweet like chocolate,she's a flower on the hill,and when I looked into her eyes that night I knew I'd never get my fill, of Rachel, of Rachel. My girl puts on makeup, when we go out to dance, and all the men they gather 'round just to try and sneak a glance at Rachel, at Rachel, at Rachel, all the boys love Rachel. My girl say's I'm romantic every time I squeeze her tight, the rain was soft and we held hands when I walked you home last night. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel, I was walking with Rachel. My girl writes love letters it's to me she likes to send, they fill the room with her perfume and the letters always end, love Rachel, Rachel, Rachel, o's and x's from Rachel.
