Okay, so here's the deal:
You go ahead and go out with that boy,
And you decide how you feel;
And if he doesn't treat you like a new toy,
Then maybe he is for real.
And if he loves you better than me,
Then I will just have to be history.
But I'm guessin'
That that lesson
Will be less than a mystery;
Because I know, and you know,
That no one can love you better than me.
Not even some boy.
