It ain't often I take time to answer calls on the request line
But this one says that we're his best last chance
So all you people in Radioland, turn it up loud, loud as you can
Help to carry these words from a desperate man

Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be?
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee

It's always scary when you find true love
It hits like lightning from high above
And you might only get one chance to say

Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be?
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee

But he got scared and let her slip away
Now he knows he's not afraid
I'll put him on the air in case she's listening somewhere

So take it to heart, keep in mind
Try to reach out through the telephone line
Caller you're on the air, say it so she hears

Do you believe in love and that we were meant to be?
Two words can free us, so repeat them after me
"I do", from a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee
From a boy in love to a girl called Tennessee
Tennessee
