I’m Gonna Tell Her If You Won’t

You take her to the show, you take her out to eat
But up ‘til now, it’s still Dutch treat
She’s waitin’ on you to show your hand
But you’re actin’ like a buddy not a love struck man

You’ve been thinkin’ you’ll scare her off
Afraid to let your feelings show
But someone needs to tell her that you’re crazy in love
And I’m gonna tell her if you won’t

Now I know you want her to read your mind
But she ain’t Kreskin you’re wastin’ time
You’re torturin’ me while you beat around the bush
Stutter and stammer with you’re school-boy crush

Don’t go thinkin’ you’ll scare her off
If you let your feelings show
Go ahead and tell her that you’re crazy in love
‘cause I’m gonna tell her if you won’t
I’m gonna tell her if you won’t

I know what she needs to hear
But your intentions are so unclear

Now you’re sittin’ on the couch a couple feet apart
So if you get your courage up, you can have a running start
You can take it like a promise, or take it like a threat
But I’m tellin’ her tomorrow if you haven’t done it yet

You’ve been thinkin’ you’ll scare her off
Afraid to let your feelings show
But someone needs to tell her that you’re crazy in love
And I’m gonna tell her if you won’t

Don’t go thinkin’ you’ll scare her off
If you let your feelings show
Go ahead and tell her that you’re crazy in love
‘cause I’m gonna tell her if you won’t
I’m gonna tell her if you won’t
