RC and a Moonpie

We were young
Too young for love of any kind
But still, I tried
I desired to blow your little mind
We went down to the General Store
I spent silver dollars and a dime
Just so you and I could share
our first RC and a Moonpie

I was twelve
You were going on eleven
It was a crush
You were my idea of heaven
You held my hand the way there
Though it was nearly suppertime
Just so you and I could share
our first RC and a Moonpie

We sat outside on the porch
It was only me and you there
I remember how you smiled
and your golden wavy hair
I don’t know if we were gone long
But I didn’t really care
Star crossed children do what matters
What happened after was unfair

It was dark
On that porch, we were a kissin’
And your Mom
She thought you were missin’
They found us on the swing
Your Daddy looked me in the eye
And said you’d ever see me again
or shared with any boy then
another RC and a Moonpie

We went back to that porch
It was only me and you there
I remember that next time
I wasn’t even timid or scared
We had to sneak around, sure
Star crossed teens do what matters
And now I’ll always share
an RC and a Moonpie with you

Now I’ll always share
an RC and a Moonpie with you
