The reason I wouldn't kiss you last night
I wouldn't kiss you 'cause I was afraid
I would like you too much
And if I liked you too much

I'd be afraid that I'd give you a present
And if I gave you a gift, you might give me a gift
And then I'd be afraid
That I wouldn't like it

The reason, there's always a reason
Behind the reason, when you look for a reason
The reason, I can give you a reason
And maybe you'll think it's a really good reason
But I come up with the reasons

Asked me if I'd scratch your back
I wouldn't scratch it
'Cause I was afraid that I might twist your arm
And if I twisted your arm

I'd be afraid that it would lead to passion
And if we got too drunk, we might fall out of the bunk
And then I'd be afraid
We could have a concussion

The reason, there's always a reason
Behind the reason, when you look for a reason
The reason, I can tell you a reason
And maybe you'll think it's a really good reason
But I come up with the reasons

Don't ever live with your real love
Stop before it starts
Real love will last much longer, stay stronger
Living in your heart
Yeah, that's where it belongs, in your heart

The reason, there's always a reason
Behind the reason, if you look for a reason
A reason, I'll tell you a reason
And maybe you'll think it's a really good reason

The reason, I can give you a reason
Though I'm not really sure if it's ever a reason

I'll never have another chance at the Parson's dance
(He's gonna spank me)
Gotta be an apple tree growing in the field
Gotta be at Frankie's place, right now
Gotta be at Danny's house, deja
Gotta meet a holy man

He'll be in the valley when Amelia tries to land
(With his shirt off)
I can never be in love, I can only be in heat
And I never felt so, never felt so
Never felt so, never felt so
Never felt so
Hot
