That day, I first saw you, oh, oh, passing by
I wanted to know your name but I was much too shy
But I was looking at you so hard
Until you must have had a hunch
So you came up to me and asked me my name

You beat me to the punch, that time
You beat me to the punch, oh, oh, oh, oh
You beat me to the punch

Oh oh oh, after I had known you for it seems like a long, long time
I wanted, wanted to ask you, would you please, please be mine
Whenever you came around, my heart would pound
So you must have had a hunch
So you came up to me and asked me to be yours

You beat me to the punch one more time
You beat me to the punch, oh, oh, oh, oh
You beat me to the punch, yeah

Since I love you, I thought you would be true and love me tender
So I let my heart surrender, to you, yes I did
But I found out beyond a doubt one day boy, you were a playboy
Who would go away and leave me blue

So I ain't gonna wait around for you to put me down
This time I'm gonna play my hunch
And walk away this very day

And beat you to the punch
This time, I'll beat you to the punch
Yes, I will
And let you know, know
How it feels, oh, oh, oh
