ALL ALONG

I better ask her
for the next dance
I might never
get another chance

how the years roll through
how the time just flies
I'm gonna get to look at you
with my brand new eyes

she wants a big back yard
she wants chickens
she wants 17 dogs
and 2 kitchens

I'm not Father Christmas
I'm not your cave man
love is risky business
I'm in my Ray-Bans

all along
waiting for you all along
all along
waiting for you all along

how long have you been in your room?
when was it you last ate?
forty days too soon?
forty years too late?

these are desperate times
to be a woman
don't matter if you're you're Leann Rimes
or Mrs. John Goodman

all along
waiting for you all along
all along
waiting for you all along

I'm so excited
I'm jumping out of my skin
I've just been knighted
Sir is how my name now begin

I'll take a whiskey
whichever kind you recommend
don't get frisky darling
just bartend

all along
waiting for you all along
all along
waiting for you all along
