lyrics

You went, wishing on a star
And placed an order for a man
Who would be gentle and handsome and earnest
According to all your plans
Well, I showed up and you didn’t seem nervous, but then
Your hopes are up and mine are straight down
Maybe it’s time I take a stand

Chorus:
I can write a love letter
If it will make you feel better
I’ll put my pencil to this paper and lie
And tell you we’ll be fine

You tell me over and over
That you’re a perfect catch
And that anyone who filtered you
Would find themselves a wretch
When I showed up. you weren’t quite perfect, i confess
And now I find myself in a fairly perfect mess

It’s amazing how you shake those hips
And when you tempt me with that mouth
I know I haven’t even kissed your lips
It’s more proper here in the south
Does anybody notice that you rarely leave much doubt?
That you’ll be my favorite when you start the jump and shout
