According to definition, affection is a thing That seems to change you from the start And complexion is a thing if affection is to blame Will act just like a mirror to your heart The object of my affection Can change my complexion From white to rosy read Anytime she holds my hand And tells me that she's mine There are many girls who can thrill me And some who can chill me But I'll just hang around And keep acting like a clown Until she says she's mine Now, I'm not afraid that she'll leave me She's not the kind who takes a dare But instead I trust her implicitly She can go where she wants to go Do what she wants to do, I don't care The object of my affection Can change my complexion From white to rosy read Anytime she holds my hand And tells me that she's mine ALTERNATE VERSES: There are many girls who can thrill me And some who can filll me With dreams of happiness But I know I'll never rest Until she says she's mine Now, I'm not afraid that she'll leave me 'Cause she's not the kind who'll be unfair But instead I trust her implicitly She can go where she wants to go Do what she wants to do, I don't care (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - November 2004) (Updated by Mel Priddle - December 2015)
