Listen close and
Don’t you say a word.
I’ll tell you a story of
A boy who heard
Nice guys finish last.
But then
It was to his surprise
She walked into his life.
Let’s rewrite this tale.

Turn, turn the pages of your real-life story
Based on love.
Read over chapters carefully
Just to finally see your past mistakes.
Push pen to paper and put your bottle down
You say that there’s no happy endings
But in this story, the good guy gets the girl.

You were so sure of yourself.
Your tongue can whip like a belt.
Too bad we’re ten feet tall.
I’m on cloud 9 and so is she
Only wants to be with me.
Score one for the nice guys.
This one goes out to all of you
Who know what I’m going through,
Singing baby I’m yours.

Turn, turn the pages of your real-life story
Based on love.
Read over chapters carefully
Just to finally see your past mistakes.
Push pen to paper and put your bottle down.
You say that there’s no happy endings
But in this story, the good guy gets the girl.

Turn, turn the pages of your real-life story
Based on love.
Read over chapters carefully
Just to finally see your past mistakes.
Push pen to paper and put your bottle down
You say that there’s no happy endings
But in this story, the good guy gets the girl.
