Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Pretty Little Pink
I'm going to commit the crime of posting to the thread
without having read all of the posts. I just can't
take the time right now. So sue me!

A "pink" is a certain small flower of the rose family, my Beautiful
Wife (a dedicated rose grower) told me years ago.

Accordingly, I've for many years understood that the singer
is indulging in a pet name for his intended, analogous to
calling her his little violet or little daisy. No racial meaning at all, is my understanding.
