lyrics

So these tall, dark, strappin' gentlemen
Call out to me "lady, why won't you smile my way?"
So I tell them, "brother, you best find another lover
I already got a little sunshine in my day," I say

You can go ahead and try to take this heart
But before you start you should know
That it's sold, sold, sold on the man in the front row

So go ahead and try to take this heart
But before you start you should know
That it's sold, sold, sold to that man I know

You talk about
You talk about heart
You talk about eyes so blue they light up the moon
They make the meanest clouds part

You talk about
You talk about lady
You talk about a lady killin' grin that picks you up
And sets you back down again

You talk about
You talk about shake
You talk about shakin' like a leaf when he looks at me,
I'm the president on a submarine
Makin' melodies at the foot of a tree
I'm a robin, he's a batman baby

You can go ahead and try to take this heart
But before you start you should know
That it's sold, sold, sold on the man in the front row

So go ahead and try to take this heart
But before you start you should know
That it's sold, sold, sold to that man I know

Doo doo dooo

So whenever a dashin' devil say
"Hey pretty girl with your hair in a curl
You've got my head in such a whirl
You got me feelin' coy,
Won't you let me be your boy?" I say

You can go ahead and try to take this
Heart, this heart, this heart
But it's sold, sold sold
Sold on the man in the front row
It's sold, sold, sold to that man I know
