Sweating with nervous anticipation
(Will he ask me to the dance?)
Sweating bullets, chewing pencils
(Will she give me half a chance?)
Shy looks and glances towards him
(Can he see I want to go?)
What's wrong--she keeps staring at me.
(Is there something I should know?)
I hope he asks me, I hope he asks me
(Oh, please ask me! Ask me now!)
I want to ask her, I want to ask her
(But, oh my gosh, I don't know how!)
Well, here he comes, I guess Iíll say it,
(Better still, I'll drop a hint.)
She's coming at me-should I ask her?
(This thing will cost us both a mint!)
So, are you going to the prom?
(Not that I might want to go.)
The prom? I havenít given it a thought!
(Are you going? Not that I really have to know.)
So, you're not going? No one has asked you?
(Oh that's cool, it will probably be so dumb.)
Hey! What if we, you know, go together,
(Like friends ,then we could goof around there--some.)
Yeah, alright, why not? I'll see ya later.
(Hooray! He finally asked me to the prom!)
Yeah, I guess I'll see ya later, too.
(Oh no! I have to meet her Dad and Mom!)
