Every night girl yeah I think of you and your in my dreams I want to see you in school. Every time we pass I feel like a kid again, I turn and smile and laugh with all my friends. You are the girl I think of all day long and you are the reason that I wrote this song. There’s just one thing that I would like to know, will you go to prom with me I beg you don’t say no.

She said she’d go, but let me say, I have a date let me explain, Dan asked me out just yesterday, so sorry Jack your two minutes too late.

How could that be, why did he ask her first? I thought things were bad, but then they got worse. She fell in love with him after one date, I guess I will just have to sit around and wait.

I have no date, the girls are gone, it must be fate, I’ll go alone, now at the dance I’ll be irate, because I was two minutes too late.

Asked her to the dance, she didn’t give me a chance, she rejected my offer and I went alone. Now I’m lacking in pride, feeling empty all inside, spending every single night just a waiting by the phone.

She said she’d go, but let me say, I have a date let me explain, Dan asked me out just yesterday, so sorry Jack your two minutes too late. I have no date, the girls are gone, it must be fate, I’ll go alone, now at the dance I’ll be irate, because I was two minutes too late. Two minutes too late.
