Commercial releaseEdit

On June 3, 2013, in a radio interview for 102.1FM The Edge Live, Del Rey was asked about whether the track would ever be released to which she replied "I loved that song, um, I don't know, I mean, you know what would be a really good idea is to release a record called The Leaked Sessions because I think I have over 120 songs that have been leaked online, that, that were meant to be for other people or for a later date, but, um, yeah, I don't know."[1]

LyricsEdit

It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls
From the 1950s
Wearing those big pearls

I’ll cook you breakfast
Coffee on your desk, yes
I might burn your toast
But baby, I’m still the bestest

It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls
On the color TV
It was a new world

The Dick Van Dyke Show
We’re Cher and Bono
The way I sing "I got you, babe"
Makes you say "oh no!"

'Cause you’re the class president
Without Jackie O
And I’m singing happy birthday
Like Marilyn Monroe

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl crush
(No! Two)
This is not puppy love
(Uh-uh)
It’s the real thing, and you told me you loved me
Promise I’ll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl thing
(No! Two)
What about the diamond ring?
(Uh-uh)
Everyone knows I’m like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it, baby

It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love

You make me wanna be
Like one of those girls
Calendar pin-up queen
And platinum curls

I’ll do my sun pose
Golden sand between my toes
You can pack my favorite snack
A Veuve Clicquot and Ho-Hos

You're everybody’s hero
And you’re hitting it home
While I’m singing for the soldiers
Like Marilyn Monroe

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl crush
(No! Two)
This is not puppy love
(Uh-uh)
It’s the real thing, and you told me you loved me
Promise I’ll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl thing
(No! Two)
What about the diamond ring?
(Uh-uh)
Everyone knows I’m like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it, baby
Baby, baby

And if I call you on the telephone
I might overdose
'Cause I’m strong, but I’m lonely
Like Marilyn Monroe

This is not a schoolgirl crush
This is not puppy love,
It’s the real thing, and you told me you loved me
What ever happened to hold me and trust me, babe?

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl crush
(No! Two)
This is not puppy love
(Uh-uh)
It’s the real thing, and you told me you loved me
Promise I’ll never see Arthur or Bobby, baby

(One)
This is not a schoolgirl thing
(No! Two)
What about the diamond ring?
(Uh-uh)
Everyone knows I’m like Jessica Rabbit
I'm your leading lady, I gotta have it, baby

It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
It’s not puppy love
Puppy, puppy, puppy love
