1 2, 1 2 3 huh
Yeah

was workin' part-time N a 5-&-dime
My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
Cuz was a bit 2 leisurely
He seen that was busy doin' somethin' close 2 nothin'
But different than the day b4
That's when saw her
Ooh, saw her
She walked N thru the out door, out door

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind U find N a 2nd-hand store
Raspberry beret
& if it was warm, she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
think love her

Built like she was, haha, she had the nerve 2 ask me
If planned 2 do her any harm, hmph
So look here, put her on the back of my bike & ah...
We went ridin' down by old man Johnson's farm
said now overcast days never turned me on
But somethin' about the clouds & her mixed, huh
She wasn't 2 bright but could tell when she kissed me
She knew how 2 get her kicks

She wore a raspberry beret
The kind U find N a 2nd-hand store
Raspberry beret
& if it was warm, she wouldn't wear much more
Raspberry beret
think love her

The rain sounds so cool when it hits the barn roof
& the horses wonder who U R
Thunder drowns out what the lightning sees, huh
& U feel like a movie star
Listen, they say the 1st time ain't the greatest
But tell ya, if had the chance 2 do it all again, ooh
wouldn't change a stroke
Cuz, baby, 'm the most
With a girl as fine as she was then, Lord

(Raspberry beret)
Oh! (The kind U find N a 2nd-hand store)
The kind U find, the kind U find, no no no (Raspberry beret)
Uh-huh, uh-huh (& if it was warm, she wouldn't wear much more)
Where have all the raspberry women gone? (Raspberry beret)
Yeah, ow!
think ... love her! (Raspberry beret)
No no no, no no no, ... (The kind U find N a 2nd-hand store)
(Raspberry beret)
Tell me where have all the raspberry women gone?
(& if it was warm, she wouldn't wear much more)
Yeah, uh (Raspberry beret)
think love her
