i haven’t been quite the same
so sure the story of my life would never change
in a bright eyed way
i rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that i’m about to sing
’cause it’s about a girl that i hardly even know
so this is not another love song
just a list of things that i should know
everyone should know that…
one: you’ve got to take it kind of slowly
two: you’ve got to hurry up and make your move
three: you’ve got to tell her that she’s pretty
four: you’ve got to be the perfect gentleman
when you shake the wall, you’ve got to make it bend
yeah you’re got to show her that she’s a balance beam
and i keep falling all around this fairy tale.
we took a walk in the rain
i suggested, she confessed that
there’s a heart nearby to cast some shade.
stay cool but i’m giddy like a school boy
you’ve got to handle with care this is not a toy
gradually we touched
though our clothes were wet
we sat and smiled
i never thought i’d smile so much
the first kiss always says the most
everyone should know that
oh this fairy tale oh this fairy tale
some kind of fairy tale. some kind of fairy tale.
everyone should know that.
