I'm a Nut

I'm an acorn, small and round
Lying on the cold, cold ground
Everyone walks over me
That is why I'm cracked you see

Called myself on the telephone
Just to hear my golden tone
Asked me out for a little date
Picked me up about half past eight

I'm a nut!

Took myself to the movie show
Stayed too late and said : Let's go
Took my hand and led me out
Drove me home and gave a shout!

I'm a nut!
