Why don't you speak up, baby?
I hear you got a way with words
And right now, your body sure is talkin' but
Not in the form of nouns or verbs

I know you're not a fan of holdin' hands
But stay with me girl, 'cause I've got a plan
It's gonna be something you don't wanna miss
So listen up, darlin', 'cause it goes like this

Tell me all your hopes, girl
And all your wishes, too
I will do my best, girl
To make them all come true (to make them all come true)
Just name the time, girl
And while you're at it, pick the place
'Cause I'll do what I can girl
To paint a smile on that face

Never know what'll happen next
But you flash that smile, and my whole day's set
Oh no, you've got me wrapped around your finger
Wrapped around your finger

But this summer, girl, I've got good news
Got two left feet but I'm not afraid to move
Kick off your shoes and come dance with me
Kick off your shoes and come dance with me
Kick off your shoes and come dance with me
Kick off your shoes and come dance with me

Tell me all your hopes, girl
And all your wishes, too
I will do my best, girl
To make them all come true
Just name the time, girl
And while you're at it, pick the place
'Cause I'll do what I can girl
To paint a smile on that face

I'm looking through these pictures
And the notes you left for me
I feel as if you'll always be
The only one I need
So grab a girl and spin and shout
And move 'til you can't stand
Or if you've got a lover
Boy, just take her by the hand (x2)

Tell me all your hopes, girl
And all your wishes, too
I will do my best girl
To make them all come true
Just name the time, girl
And while you're at it, pick the place
'Cause I'll do what I can girl
To paint a smile on that face

    General Commentwow, i'm surprised that no one's commented on this yet... Anyways, even though I LOVE SMTS, this is probably the weakest song on the EP, but nonetheless a cute song lyric-wise :)

    General CommentThis song and Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is is, in my opinion, the two best songs out of the album.

    Heck, in fact, Larzz & SMTS is one of the best powerpop/alternative rock artist out there! =D
