I'll never forget the first day I met her
The way she spoke and laughed at my jokes
Against the edge of my desk
And we'd sit together in double

And it's surprising how quick
We dreamed of her and compared our dreams
She lied to me with her body you see

Were far and few between
Did she close her eyes like I did
And la la la la la la la la means I love you
She danced with me and I still hold that memory
And I stare up at her window
But I never made the first team,
And she never came to the phone
I had to look in the dictionary
While she was giving herself for free

And I hide my humble hopes now
A girl not old enough to shave her legs
