BALLAD OF A TEENAGE QUEEN
(Jack Clement)
JOHNNY CASH (SUN 283, 1958)

Dream on, dream on, teenage queen
Prettiest girl we've ever seen

There's a story in our town
Of the prettiest girl a-round
Golden hair and eyes of blue
How those eyes could flash at you
(How those eyes could flash at you)
Boys hung around her by the score
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

Dream on, dream on, teenage queen
Prettiest girl we've ever seen

She was tops in all they said
It never once went to her head
She had ev'ry-thing, it seemed
Not a care, this teenage queen
(Not a care, this teenage queen)
Other boys could offer more
But she loved the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

Dream on, dream on, teenage queen
You should be a movie queen

He would marry her next spring
Saved his money and bought a ring
Then one day a movie scout
Came to town to take her out
(Came to town to take her out)
Hollywood could offer more
So she left the boy next door
Workin' at the candy store

Dream on, dream on, teenage queen
See you on the movie screen

Very soon she was a star
Pretty house and shiny cars
Swimming pool and a fence around
But she missed her old hometown
(But she missed her old hometown)
All the world was at her door
All except the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

Dream on, dream on, teenage queen
Saddest girl we've ever seen

Then one day the teenage star
Sold her house and all her cars
Gave up all her wealth and fame
Left it all and caught a train
(Left it all and caught a train)
Do I have to tell you more
She came back to the boy next door
Who worked at the candy store

Now this story has some more
You'll hear it all at the candy store
