Lyrics

[Verse 1] That day, I first saw you passing by I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy But I was looking at you so hard Until you must have had a hunch So you came up to me and asked me my name [Chorus 1] You beat me to the punch that time You beat me to the punch You beat me to the punch [Verse 2] After I had known you for it seems like a long, long time I wanted, wanted to ask you, would you please, please be mine Whenever you came around, my heart would pound So you must have had a hunch So you came up to me and asked me to be yours [Chorus 1] [Verse 3] Since I love you, I thought you would be true and love me tender So I let my heart surrender -- to you, yes, I did But I found out beyond a doubt one day, boy, you were a playboy Who would go away and leave me -- blue So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down This time I'm gonna play my hunch And walk away this very day [Chorus 2] And beat you to the punch this time And beat you to the punch this time I'll beat you to the punch, yes, I will And let you know, know, how it feels
