Lyrics & Book Excerpt

ZACH (sings):
The girl for me is beautiful.
Radiant and cute and full of
Graceful poses,
Bright red roses,
Tasteful clothes and
Other sights but
She has so much more to see
Than make-up done attractively.
She has personality.
That’s the kind of girl I like.
Her mind is as enchanting as
The lovely things her body has.
She has gentility,
And intelligence.
She’s brilliant or at least she’s smart.
Able to read most any chart.
But she also has a heart.
That’s the kind of girl I like.
And with all the knowledge
She’s gained in college
She’ll start her own career.
And eventually
We’ll have a family
And she will call me “Dear”
If she wants to.
She’ll never ever frown
And she’ll be happy no matter how
The pie is sliced.
She’s always nice
At any price
And that is why
She’s always so compassionate
And this is the companion that
I’ll stick with through the thin and fat.
That’s the kind of girl I like.
But she won’t be just a friend
And she won’t be just a lover
And it won’t take too long
Until I discover
Stars shining up above.
And that’ll be the girl I love.
