I fell in love with the girl downstairs when I was seven years old
she wasn't much to look at but she smelled like cinnamon rolls

but she declined the offer to be my Billie Jean
it took a while to get over and soon I was seventeen

now baby I don't know what to do
I'll never get anything done if I fall for you
now baby I'm a sucker it's true
I'll never get anything done if I fall for you

seventeen began pretty lonely - I made a lot of model planes
but then I found me a one and only: a girl who loved candy canes

but when the holidays were over she called me to have a word
my heart was stopped in that parking lot and ten years later I'm cured


twenty-seven, thirty-seven, those casualties of youth
forty, fifty, sixty-seven, all leading up to…

so what's it like?
if you do just what I did
and your heart doesn't mind it
it's like a kite to a blind kid:
you gotta feel it, feel it, feel it, feel it…

seventy-seven and my doors are open again
I got a date, it's looking great, she's a friend of a friend of a friend
we'll grab a meal and seal the deal and share a bingo card
love is pretty easy - it's the in-between that's hard
