I had a little girl, now
We crossed the state line
It was more than just an overdraft
We were looking at time

If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer
If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer

We had to leave in a hurry, now
No time to hesitate
It was worse than misunderstanding
I had to ask her not to call it fate

If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer
If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer

No one sleeps on the yellow line
No one's that alone
Someone's in the window
So don't try to use the phone

We're just up against it
We turned up in the zone
If you ever get an overdraft
You'll never make it home

If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer
If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer

If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer
If I do say so, I can't let go
And I don't take no for an answer
