I see you there with your eyes all aglow
Itching to tell me all the things you know

And I can hardly wait that’s why I went and saved a date
at our own private table in the back of your favorite place

You got me on the edge of my seat
Can’t wait to see you got buried underneath ya
Waiter don’t go spoiling it please
The cruel anticipation is Oh so sweet

You say your dads a lawyer, and your mom works with a canvas
You’re sisters in the corner little shorter little darker always teaching crazy people all her crazy dances

I grew up alone, my parent split went to live at my daddy’s home
Times got bad, but still he never let me know

Mom was never far away
Every other weekend I went to stay
And time passed by near the city by the bay

I got you on the edge of your seat
Ya can’t wait to see what I got buried underneath me
Nerves have got you shaking your knees
The cruel anticipation is Oh so sweet


We swing round the lazy susan
Bellies full, I’ll take you cruisin
Down to Lakewood Park just before dark
We’re headin to the solstice steps, gonna watch the sun go down

Then you and me baby we’ll fool around

You got me on the edge of my seat

You and me babe, swinging in the tree babe
First comes love, next comes the lovin
