I hesitate to say I was bait for you
Could that be something that you all would do
I'd be lying if I did now say I wasn't intrigued
But timing is everything here
And for the moment the 'we' is reprieved

But as I watch the girl unfold before my eyes
I discover that I like her

Would you please get our from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue

And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

I'm in the dance and it's a chance
But stay and watch awhile
I'll be singing a tune just for you with a smile

And maybe, if I'm lucky you'll tip your hat to me
And you'll discover that you like her

Would you please get out from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue

And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

And crazy as it all plays out
I think I'm lonelier than I've ever been before
'Cause I was so close to going through that door
But I don't want to be to blame for them
I don't want to be to blame

Would you please get out from under my skin
For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue

Deep deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go, go, go, go

Oh, would you please get out
I'm not as strong as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right

I know, would you please, please, please get out
I'm not as strong as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
