I saw your black dress lying on the mattress,
Know that I should run but I'm a sucker for an actress.

I'm generally a gentleman, no lie.
I can not control my hands tonight,
And when I start to stare,
I just don't care enough to stop my eyes.

I was only here too put her in the rear-view,
It never crossed my mind that,
She could be the one too,
Make me want to come through,
I should have closed my eyes.

She's like a prom queen, eighteen.
She cut me down with a TKO I know,
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you.

And I've never been a gentleman, in my life.
But there's a first time for everything, so I'll try.
And when our friends are gone I'll fight what's on my mind.

I was only here too put her in the rear-view,
It never crossed my mind that,
She could be the one too,
Make me want to come through,
I should have closed my eyes.

She's like a prom queen, eighteen.
She cut me down with a TKO I know,
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you.

And I'll be waiting for you
Second-best it gets to me
With your black dress and mattress scenes.
Second-best it gets to me
With your black dress and mattress scenes.

I saw your black dress lying on the mattress,
Know that I should run but I'm a sucker for an actress.

She's like a prom queen, eighteen.
She cut me down with a TKO I know,
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you.

She's like a prom queen, eighteen.
She cut me down with a TKO I know,
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you.
I wasn't ready when you're nineteen, nineteen
I'll take you down with a TKO you know that I'll be waiting for you.
