lyrics

You’re the prettiest girl in our phone book
Prettiest girl in our town
I know you don’t think much about the way I look
And if I asked you, you’d turn me down
But I’m the smartest of kids
And if you came with me
I’d treat you so right it’d be a certainty
That you’d love me by the time we say goodnight

I’ve seen you many times on our corner
Off with your best-friend down town
With my eyes I implored you every time I saw you
But you, you never looked round
But I’m the smartest of kids
And if you came with me
I’d treat you so right it’d be a certainty
That you’d love me by the time we say goodnight

But every, every time I come near you
You’re moving way too fast
I’ve come to the conclusion
That you don’t want to be asked

We could go for a day on a train ride
Like tearaways bunking off school
Or we’d go for a walk around our local park
And cut our feet in the paddling pool
But I’m the smartest of kids
And if you came with me
I’d treat you so right it’d be a certainty
That you’d love me by the time we say goodnight
That you’d love me by the time we say goodnight
That you’d love me by the time we say goodnight
