1) When they told me about you, it was much too late,
They told me at nine o’clock, but I met you at eight,
They say you turn so many heads, you always play with men,
But I like the way you play with me, so won’t you start all over again?
I might not look like Romeo, but forsooth Juliet,
Let me try out for the role, it’s a move you won’t regret.
2) They say you’re lookin’ for a big fish and not small fry like me,
Like a multi-millionaire or some Old World royalty,
At the very least a Nobel winner or a movie star,
They say you don’t want a small town guy who plays a banged-up old guitar. (Ref.)
3) So many good reasons to stop playin’ the fool,
So many good teachers, but I just quit school,
They can wag their tongues all day, if that’s their kind of fun,
But the only vote that counts is yours, and that adds up to one.
