Pigtails and Freckles

Pigtails and freckles, braces on your teeth
who would have thought you would turn out so beautiful?
Awkward and bashful, scared right from the start
who would have thought you would turn out so smart?
 
Changes, many changes, since I first looked at you,Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
funny, very funny, what a few years can do!
Pigtails and freckles, braces on your teeth
who would have thought they'd become so sublime? 
I would have thought, for I thought so all the time!

Pigtails and freckles, braces on your teeth
who would have thought they'd become so sublime? 
I would have thought, for I thought so all the time!
