If I gave you pretty flowers
If I took you out to dinner
If we walked on by the river
Would you invite me in?

If we sat down on the sofa
If I told you funny stories
If I moved a little closer
Would you put your hand in mine?

If I told you you were lovely
If I put my arm around you
If I touched you on the shoulder
Would you rest your head on mine?

If I took you out to dinner
If I moved a little closer
and I touched you on the shoulder
Would you make love to me?

Oh my darling I have loved you
Since you took me out to dinner
Since we walked down by the river
Over thirty years ago

When you told me that you loved me
I hadn't felt so lovely
Since the day I decided
That I would marry you

Well I took you out to dinner
and I told you funny stories
and I moved a little closer
and you made love to me

If I gave you pretty flowers
If I took you out to dinner
If we walked down by the river
La la la la la la la

    General Commentthis song is so sweet, i heard if for th first time last night watching american idol.
    the song is all about long lasting and loving relationships which made me think of my grandparents who mean the world to me, the lyrics and tune are awesome and steve martin is a genius.
