Understand this
I'm not looking for true love tonight
If you wanna be my little baby you can
Meet me in the pale moonlight
I've been working everyday 8 to 9 and
Serving coke and fries at the movie blue drive-in
If you want me you know where to find me

I can be your one time baby
I can be your little dairy queen
I don't wanna care tonight
I don't wanna fight
You don't have to give me anything
Just put your sweet kiss kiss on my lips now baby

Understand this
I've been liking you since I was small
I don't wanna get you running scared when
There's no pressure there at all
I've been working 8 to 9 everyday and
Think about you almost all the time, all the time and
If I want to see you I drive by

I can be your one time baby
I can be your little dairy queen
I don't wanna care tonight
I don't wanna fight
You don't have to give me anything
Just put your sweet kiss kiss on my lips now baby

I'm the sweetest girl in town
So why are you so mean?
When you gonna ditch that stupid (bitch) you got
It's me you should be seeing

Hello you are looking so fine, so fine
Fantasy about you's like a gold mine, gold mine
Asking everybody, is he mine, is he mine?
Not quite yet, but I'm gonna get, get him
Not quite yet, but I'm gonna get, get him

I can be your one time baby
I can be your little dairy queen
I don't wanna care tonight
I don't wanna fight
You don't have to give me anything
Just put your sweet kiss kiss on my lips now baby

    My InterpretationThis song seems to be about a girl who's very much in love with a guy, but she is in denial about it, because he doesn't want to date her/anyone. Commitment scares him, so she hides her affection under the guise of wanting a strictly physical relationship. The girl has no expectations, because she would rather have SOMETHING with the guy, even if it's strictly physical, as opposed to nothing.


    She sings lyrics like, "I can be your one time baby," "I don't wanna care tonight," "You don't have to give me anything," which implies that she doesn't care for an emotional relationship. In reality, her true intentions of developing a serious relationship are revealed within other parts of the song...

    "It's me you should be seeing"


    "Asking everybody, is he mine, is he mine?
    Not quite yet, but I'm gonna get, get him"

    She seeks a physical relationship with the guy for two purposes:
    1) She enjoys it, in and of itself.
    2) She hopes that it will lead to a serious romantic relationship.
