Lyrics
He saw her every day
She was workin at the seven eleven
He would buy two hotdogs or some nachos or a slim jim
Just so that he could see her pretty face
Then he got up the nerve to ask her out one day
And she replied, flat out no chance no way
But in his mind this is what he herd her say!

Will you meet me on the corner?
I'll be wearin' something pretty
Just for you, you can hold my hand,
Kiss my cheek we'll be
Together, forever
You may be the very best thing that's ever happened to me

Well she must have forgotten, or her dog got sick or something like that
Cause he waited on the corner
Hour after hour, then he went back to his flat by himself
And watched T.V
But the very next day he tried again
And she replyed,
Not if every other man on this earth were dead
But I swear, this is what he thought she said!

Will you meet me on the corner?
I'll be wearin' something pretty
Just for you, you can hold my hand
Kiss my cheek we'll be
Together, forever
You may be tyhe very best thing that's ever happened to me

Well he could not help himself
He begged her just to listen
To what he had to say
He said,"Beauty is only skin deep
It's what's inside that counts."
She she said okay, so he told he all about
How he like to take long walks in the park,
Sunsets, riding motorcycles, watching foreign movies,
Reading books about lands that are far, far away
And how one day he's gonna' travel 'round the world
Singin' songs about people and places
Then finally she said the words that he heard in his head
She said, "Oaky, shut up!"

I will meet you on the corner
I'll be wearin' something pretty
Just for you, you can hold my hand
Kiss my cheek, we'll be together, forever,
You may be the very
(3x)
Best thing that's happened to me.
