The ob - ject of my af - fec - tion can change my com - plex - ion from white to ro -sy red,
An - y - time she holds my hand and tells me that shes mine.
There are man - y girls who can thrill me and some who can fill me with dreams of hap - pi - ness,
But I know I'll nev - er rest un - til she says she's mine.
Now I'm not a - fraid that shell leave me, cause she's not the kind who'll be un - fair,
But in - stead I trust her im- pli - cit - ly.  She can go where she wants to go, do what she wants to do, I won't care.
Oh, The ob - ject of my af - fec - tion can change my com - plex - ion from white to ro - sy red,
An - y - time she holds my hand and tells me that she's mine.
