Verse:
No one in this world will ev - er take your place,
E - ven tho' you lead my heart a mer - ry chase;
And all the while you're in - no - cent - ly play - ing,
With - in a smile, my lone - ly heart keeps say - ing:
 
Chorus:
Cher - ry, Cher - ry, ain't it a shame,
That you can't be sweet as your name;
Al - ways flirt - in', hav - in' your fun,
Nev - er cer - tain if I'm the one;
But if I am, I'll hang a - roun',
'Till you grow up and set - tle down;
But will ya, while your heart's on a spree,
Cher - ry, save your lov - ing for me.
