"Can't Get Up The Nerve" as written by and George Weiss Bennie Benjamin....
Every day I see your eyes
And you look at mine, and you don't say hi
You smile at me as you walk away
And I won't see you for another day

I can't get up the nerve to call you
But you're not waiting for me, are you?

Another day, and I try to smile
I have not felt this way in quite a while
We pass again and we both say hi
And it feels so good when you pass me by

I can't get up the nerve to call you
But you're not waiting for me, are you?

I can't get up the nerve to call you
But you're not waiting for me, are you?

This time around I'll flash a smile
You know I'm more than just a child
You tell me that your boyfriend's mad
And so's your mom, and so's your dad

I can't get up the nerve to call you
But you're not waiting for me, are you?

Are you?

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who has a huge crush on this girl. The fact that she's taken (Not to mention, way out of his league), doesn't stop him from liking her. But that all doesn't matter anyway, because he can't get up the nerve to say more than "Hi."
