Cherry, Cherry Rozanda was her real name But Cherry was her chosen one Everybody said that she'd soon be dead But Cherry replied "At least I had some fun" (Oh yes)
Her eyes were like a pool of 24 karat diamonds I was the last in a long line of foolish men who dived in
CHORUS: Cherry, Cherry I think about U every rising sun Whoa Cherry, Cherry Wherever U are, I hope U're havin' fun (Oh yes)
Tuesday was my big game North vs. Central in basketball Underneath their long coats Cherry and the girls wore camisoles Every time North would run the hoop Cherry would flash 'em and they would fall But not as hard as I fell When Cherry gave me her number and told me 2 call (U should call me)
Using all the money her boyfriend Wilbur gave her, she'd buy Anything I wanted, that's why my baby's so fly
(Do do do do do) Me and Cherry got married And tried our best 2 keep it on the down low, the down low
I was combing her hair The day that Wilbur called and cussed her on the phone He beat her up real bad and figured I was gonna leave her Instead I bought a 45 and set out 2 relieve her (Take him out) If he was taken out then he could never harm another No sooner than I got there, I was met by Cherry's mother cryin'
Cherry, Cherry Every night I ask the Lord why? Oh why? Cherry, Cherry Another victim of a suicide (Why oh why?) Why?
Cherry, Cherry I think about U every rising sun Whoa Cherry, Cherry Wherever U are, I hope U're havin' fun I hope U're having fun, baby
Cherry, Cherry I'd give anything 2 kiss U Cherry, Cherry I guess I just miss U Cherry
