Red-headed Restaurant Cashier

SHAKE back your hair, O red-headed girl.
Let go your laughter and keep your two
proud freckles on your chin. Somewhere
is a man looking for a red-headed girl
and some day maybe he will look into
your eyes for a restaurant cashier and
find a lover, maybe.
Around and around go ten thousand men
hunting a red headed girl with
two freckles on her chin.
I have seen them hunting, hunting.
Shake back your hair; let go your laughter.
