"Balance Beam" as written by and Justin S Furstenfeld....
I haven't been quite the same
So sure the story of my life would never change
In a bright eyed way
Rinsed out the soap in my eyes and wrote a song that I'm about to sing

It's about a girl that I hardly even know
It's not another love song
Just a list of things that I should know
Ever man should know thatâ?¦

One: You've got to take it kind of slowly
Two: You've got to hurry up and make your move
Three: You've got to tell her that she's pretty
Four: You've got to be the perfect gentleman

When you shake the walls, you've got to make â??em bend
Yeah you've got to show her that she's pretty
She's so pretty
You've the balance beam
And I keep falling all around this fairy tale.

We took a walk in the rain
My suggestion, she requested
The park nearby to cast the shade
Stay cool but I'm giddy like a schoolboy

You've got to handle with care this is not a toy
Gradually we touched
Though our clothes were wet
We sat and smiled
I never thought I'd smile so much
The first kiss always says the most

Every man should know that


OO this fairy tale OO this fairy tale
Some kind of fairy tale. Some kind of fairy tale.

Every man should know that.

    General Commenti saw these guys on friday at Fitzgeralds. They're awesome. This is one of my favorite songs. Ya, they played the other version, which i think is better, but it's all good

    General CommentI thought it was "it's about a girl that I hardly even know so this is not another love song, just a list of things that I should know and everyone should know"
