"Check Yes Or No" as written by and Danny Wells Dana Oglesby....
It started way back in third grade
I used to sit beside Emmylou Hayes
A pink dress, a matching bow, and her ponytail
She kissed me on the school bus but told me not to tell
Next day I chased her around the playground
Cross the monkey bars to the merry-go-round
And Emmylou got caught passing me a note
Before the teacher took it I read what she wrote

Do you love me do you want to be my friend
And if you do
Well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no

Now we're grown up and she's my wife
Still like two kids with stars in our eyes
Not much has changed I still chase Emmylou
Up and down the hall around the bed in our room
Last night I took her out in a white limousine
Twenty years together she still gets to me
Can't believe it's been that long ago
When we got started with just a little note

Do you love me do you want to be my friend
And if you do
Well then don't be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes
Check yes or no

    General CommentThis song is obviously about a married couple who first met in elementary school. It's so cute, that they still have the passion they first did in school when they met for eachother. Very good song!

    General CommentCutest song ever! The meaning is pretty self explanatory. It starts out as just a little crush and as they get older their relationship turns into something bigger, and in the end they get married. Aw.

    General CommentThis is a great older song. I remember it coming out when I was the age of the children in the song! Now, hearing it as a young adult, it makes me wish that someday my husband will be that crazy about me and chase me playfully around the house! I love the story of a relationship that maintains the childlike spirit of fun and interest.
