That Girl

This is for that one girl
She's sweet as honey, precious as a pearl
This girl has a beautiful smile, skin like butter
I'm priviledged to taste her ice cream, which makes it better

I knew this girl before, so we know each other
We can talk about anything, share secrets with one another
Her festive spirit enlivens my own soul
Sweet personality that's worth more than gold

Deep down inside, there's something more than what's told
She's humble, intelligent, yet aggressive and bold
Her charm can bring any man down to his knees
Yet, I'm able to fulfill her fantasies without asking please

She melts my tastebuds like honeybuns with cinnamon swirls
I can't ask for a better friend than that girl.
