The Green Stamps song runs
I found my love in a grocery shop,
Selling pickles and egg-plants and bottles of pop;
She asked me to try her asparagus tips,
And I fell for the smile on her ruby red lips.
Green stamps were all she gave,
Green stamps were all I took,
Green stamps were all I saved,
So I pasted them all in my green stamp book.
I'd go every day just to gaze at her face,
And in no time at all I had bought out the place.
Though ne'er did I e'er taste her ruby red lips,
I own four thousand cans of asparagus tips.
Whenever I'm lonely or tired or blue,
I go to my bookshelf and here's what I do:
I reach for that book and then with loving care,
I count every green stamp that's pasted in there.
