You Beat Me To The Punch (Wells Mary)

That day, I first saw you passing by I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy But I was looking at you so hard Until you must have had a hunch So you came up to me and asked me my name You beat me to the punch that time You beat me to the punch You beat me to the punch After I hadn't known you for it seems like a long, long time I wanted, wanted to ask you, would you please, please be mine Whenever you came around, my heart would pound So you must have had a hunch So you came up to me and asked me to be yours You beat me to the punch one more time You beat me to the punch You beat me to the punch, yeah Since I love you, I thought you would be true And love me tender So I let my heart surrender To you, yes, I did But I found out beyond a doubt one day, boy, you were a playboy Who would go away and leave me blue So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down This time I'm gonna play my hunch And walk away this very day And beat you to the punch this time And beat you to the punch this time I'll beat you to the punch, yes, I will And let you know, know, how it feels
