Innocence personified

 

What me! Guilty, n---oo

I wouldnít hurt a fly.

 

Just look at this innocent face!

This is the kind of face that any mother would love!?

I donít have a mean bone in my body.

 

Why Ö I donít even know the meaning of Ďbad!

I was raised to be kind and to love.

Do these paws look red to you?

 

Iím telling you, Iím innocent.

And if Iím not, well Ö

may the good lord strike me down, /

throw my body into the deepest dungeon and

throw away the key.

 

Iím innocent Iím telling you,

as innocent as a baby in a cradle.

You do believe me,

donít you!!!???

donít you!!!?
