lyrics

Well, my heart skipped a beat
when you walked into the room
and in five seconds I was thinking bride and groom
I was thinking bride and groom
thinking man and wife
Never fell in love so fast in all of my life

I know you’ll like my friends
and you’ve got to meet my parents
My dad is pretty funny
and my mom looks like Betty White
I’ve got to have another drink to figure out
a way to introduce myself to you tonight

I’m lousy on the first night, better by the third
I was raised Catholic, in case you hadn’t heard
But I ain’t the type of man who lives on dreams and wishes
or walks around the house breaking bread and blessing fishes

If I sent a dozen roses just out of habit
would you press those flowers in a copy of Babbitt?
I need another drink, I need a cigarette
I ain’t giving up
I’m gonna get you yet

I’ll give you the rights to my ten best songs
If you want to talk, I can talk till dawn
Right there I need a word that rhymes with urn
I guess your name is the first thing I ought to learn

I hope you’re a Democrat, I hope you like the Red Sox
Hope you like bourbon with a splash of water
on the rocks
Bourbon with a splash is the only drink I make
but baby I can learn
There’s a course I can take

You might as well give up
I’m gonna make my move
We can honeymoon in Paris
hang out at the Louvre
We can winter in the city, summer up in Maine
And all of this will happen
just as soon as I learn your name
