lyrics

Come on over, watch the football game; I’ll put popcorn on the stove,
And if the weather’s getting’ cold, the hearth will warm our toes.
I know I may not know you well; sometimes that’s how it goes.
But it’s never gonna happen if you don’t stop ‘n say hello.

Oh I'd like to know more than your name,
Because I know you’re more’n a pretty face,
And I sure admire the company you keep,
So won’t you come and talk to me?
Yes lady, come and talk to me!

Everyone who knows, they all speak of you well,
But missy, I’ll be frank: I’d like to see it for myself.
It’s not that I don’t trust them; in fact it’s that I do,
And I’ve got to get to know you if they’re all telling the truth.

Oh I'd like to know more than your name,
Because I know you’re more’n a pretty face,
And I sure admire the company you keep,
So won’t you come and talk to me?
Yes lady, come and talk to me!

I hope I don’t sound forward, ‘cause girl I can be slow.
We might have a lot in common, but I honestly don’t know,
So I’ll try not to act crazy if you’ll kindly do the same,
‘Cause you’re lookin’ pretty foxy, but I’m hopin’ that you’re tame.

Oh I'd like to know more than your name,
Because I know you’re more’n a pretty face,
And I sure admire the company you keep,
So won’t you come and talk to me?
Yes lady, come and talk to me!

I make music when there's a song inside me that has to get played, and I'm astounded when other people like it too.
