That day, I first saw you passing by
I wanted, to know your name but I was much too shy
I was looking at you so hard
Until you must have had a hunch

So you came up to me and asked me my name
Baby, you beat me to the punch
You beat me to the punch
You beat me to the punch, baby

After, I had known you for what seems like a long, long time
I wanted, wanted to ask you would you please, please be mine
Whenever you came around, my heart would pound
So you must have had a hunch

So you came up to me and asked me to be yours
Baby, you beat me to the punch
Beat me to the punch
You beat me to the punch

Since I loved you, I thought you would be true
And love me tender, I let my heart surrender to you, yes I did
But I found out beyond a doubt one day girl
You were a play girl to walk away and leave me so blue

So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down
This time I'm gonna play my hunch
And walk away this very very day
And beat you to the punch
Baby, I'll beat you to the punch
Baby, I'll beat you to the punch
