I dont believe in first impressions
For just this once I hope that looks dont deceive
I aint got time for true confessions
Ive got to make the move right now
Got to meet that girl somehow

Ive gotta get it right the first time
Thats the main thing
I cant afford to let it pass
You get it right the next time thats not the same thing
Gonna have to make the first time last.

Im not much good at conversation
I never was too smooth at comin on real strong
If all it takes is inspiration
Then I might have just what it takes
If I dont make no bad mistakes and i

Get it right the first time
Thats the main thing
Cant afford to let it pass
You get it right the next time
Thats not the same thing
Have to make the first time last

I might find the courage yeah I might get up the nerve
But if my timing aint just right what purpose would it serve?
I dont know, I dont know, I dont know how
To say those first few words

If I want to put myself in touch
The first few moments mean so much
So I suppose its now or never
Before that woman walks right out of my life
Just let me pull myself together
Ive got to give it one good try
Gotta take my chance tonight

Ive gotta get it right the first time
Thats the main thing
I cant afford to let it pass
You get it right the next time
Thats not the same thing
Gonna have to make the first time last
