Wait (disgrace)
I know I shouldn't, but we'll wait (such a pretty face)
I know the time is getting late (such a waste)
And here is what you hesitate (such a pretty face)
But still I really wish that you'd wait (such a waste)
Although the passion might abate (such a pretty face)
And find you in another state (it's such a state)
That will seem just as a mistake (it's such a waste)
Oh baby, I really think that I oughta wait (such a pretty face)
Wait (it was such a waste)
I really wouldn't want your hate (it's such a pretty face)
Certainly not after like late (such a waste)
You want to give not only take (it's such a pretty face)
I know propriety is such a waste (it's such a disgrace)
But then it says you really have to wait (such a pretty face)
