Raspberry Beret Lyrics

by Warren Zevon

I was working part time in the five and dime
My boss was Mr. McGee, he told me several times
That he didn't like my kind
'Cause I was a bit too leisurely

I was always busy doing something close to nothing
Different then the time before
That's when I saw her, oh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
When it was warm she didn't wear much more
Raspberry beret, I think I love her

Built the way she was, she had the nerve to ask me
If I meant to do her any harm
So I put her on the back of my bike and we went riding
Down by old man Johnson's farm

Now rainy days never turned me on
But something about the way, the clouds and her mixed
She wasn't too bright to know the way she kissed me
I knew she knew how to get her kicks

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
When it was warm she didn't wear much more
Raspberry beret, I think I love her

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
When it was warm she didn't wear much more
Raspberry beret, I think I love her

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
When it was warm she didn't wear much more
Raspberry beret, I think I love her
