"Jimmy, please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up someday, you'll see
Saving all my kisses just for you
Signed with love, forever true"

Joni was the girl who lived next door
I've known her, I guess, ten years or more
Joni wrote me a note one day
And this is what she had to say

"Jimmy, please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up someday, you'll see
Savin' all my kisses just for you
Signed with love, forever true"

Slowly I read her note once more
Then I went over to the house next door
Her tear drops fell like rain that day
When I told Joni what I had to say

"Joni, Joni, please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
You're just fifteen, I'm twenty-two
And Joni I just can't wait for you"

Soon I left our little home town
Got me a job and tried to settle down
But these words kept haunting my memory
The words that Joni said to me

"Jimmy, please say you'll wait for me
I'll grow up someday, you'll see
Savin' all my kisses just for you
Signed with love, forever true"

I packed my clothes and I caught a plane
I had to see Joni, I had to explain
How my heart was filled with her memory
And ask my Joni if she'd marry me

I ran all the way to the house next door
But things weren't like they were before
My tear drops fell like rain that day
When I heard what Joni had to say

"Jimmy, Jimmy, please don't cry
You'll forget me by and by
It's been five years since you've been gone
Jimmy, I married your best friend, John"
