What's Her Name?

Sharing Stories

Ed Wallace and daughter Lisa, also known as what's her name.

"What's Her Name?"

I’ll never forget ol’ what’s her name.

She used to bunk out here.

She sure was a pretty little gal

with a smile from ear to ear.

It's hard to realize how long she stayed.

The time went by so fast.

I know she was a constant joy

from the first day to the last.

And I know I'll always miss her whenever she's away.

She knows whatever her future holds, here she can always stay.

Thank God, she let her room out to another pretty little miss,

who, like her, captured my heart.

What's her name calls her Sis!
