8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
No one in this world will ever take your place,
Even tho' you lead my heart a merry chase;
And all the while you're innocently playing,
Within a smile, my lonely heart keeps saying:
Cherry, Cherry, ain't it a shame,
That you can't be sweet as your name;
Always flirtin', havin' your fun,
Never certain if I'm the one;
But if I am, I'll hang aroun',
'Till you grow up and settle down;
But will ya, while your heart's on a spree,
Cherry, save your loving for me.
