"What Are You Waiting For?" as written by Mark Clifford Mueller and Andrew G. Goldmark....
There is this girl, she looks a lot like me
And all she does is think about you constantly
But she's too shy to ever let it show
And I think you know

Now just for fun,
Let's pretend that it's me,
And I'm everything you'll ever need

CHORUS:
What are you waiting for?
Are you crazy?
Open up your eyes and see what's going on, baby
There's someone at your door
Her heart is racing
Come on and make your move
What are you waiting for baby?
END CHORUS

Now here's a clue: her favorite color's blue
That's how she'll feel if she can't be with you
Cause you're the one who takes her breath away
When you look that way

So just for fun
Let's pretend that it's me
And I'm everything you'll ever need

CHORUS

I hear there's something good that waits for you
Check it out. It just might be true
There's so much more to her that meets the eye
You'll never know it if you don't try

CHORUS 2 TIMES

    My InterpretationI always pretended the line "And all she does is think about you constantly" was "And though she doesn't think about you constantly" which gave the heroine of the song's little story more depth and made her seem less weak/hysterical to my preteen self.
    Now the very next line definitely sets an important aspect of this speakers personality however: "But she's too shy to ever let it show, And I think you know." THEN come the following lines "Now just for fun, Let's pretend that it's me, And I'm everything you'll ever need" and they're totally contradictory to the just previously said lines. If she were really such a shy person, why would she still be confident enough to believe that she's everything this guy she likes needs? To think something like that you'd have to be a very dominating, confident person; you must not have a very passionate crush on this guy if you feel he NEEDS you to be with him.
    In the chorus, she tells the guy, I guess with hinting, "make your move, I'm waiting for you to." Again with the shyness. Ah. and her favorite color is blue, I'll bet it's a muted blue, like a foggy evening. He has some kinda sexy look that he sometimes makes, and it knocks the wind out of her. All the shyness.
    "There's so much more to her that meets the eye"? Yeah that sounds right.. that's actually what I hear her say too. although usually somebody would say the opposite, "There's so much more to her THAN meets the eye." So is that a TYPO or really what she says...??
    Still, legit cutesy fluffy "crush" song. even though the girl seems like a flake.
    This song reminds me of the anime character Miho from Season Zero Yu-Gi-Oh.
