I haven't been quite the same
So sure the story of my life would never change
Then in a bright eyed way
I rinsed out the soap in my eyes
*(She rinsed out the soap in my eyes)*
And wrote the song that I'm about to sing
*(and wrote a song that I'm about to sing)*
'Cause it's about a girl that I hardly even know
*(She's a magnetic girl, oh, that, that I hardly even know)*
So this is not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
And everyone should know that

One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that she's pretty
*(Three: You've got to tell her how you're feelin', and)*
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
You shake a wall
You've got to make it bend, yeah
You've got to show her that she's the balance beam
*(You've got to show her that she's a balance beam)*
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.
*(and I keep falling all around her fairy tale. Fairy tale.)*

We took a walk in the rain
I suggested, she confessed
There's a heart near by to cast that shade
Stay cool but I'm giddy like a school boy
You've got to handle with care, this is not a toy
Then gradually we touch
Although our clothes were wet we sat and smiled
*(And though our clothes were wet we sat and smiled)*
I never thought I'd smile so much, ah
The first kiss always says the most
*(The first kiss always says the most, like)*

One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that she's pretty, and
*(Three: You've got to tell her how you're feelin', and)*
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
You shake a wall
You've got to make it bend, yeah
You've got to show her that she's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

I said oh, fuh-fah a fairy tale, ah
*(Oh, uh-ah a fairy tale, a fairy tale, my, yeah)*
I wanna sing to you

And everyone should know that
*(Everyone should know that)*
One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that she's pretty, and
*(Three: You've got to tell her how you're feelin', and)*
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman
You shake a wall
You've got to make it bend, yeah
You've got to show her that she's the balance beam
And I keep falling all around her fairy tale.

My, my fairy tale
*(above deleted in alternate)*
Some kind of fairy tale, some kind of fairy tale
And, everyone should know that.
*(Everyone should know that)*
