about

A song about being the absolute man, but actually just pretending. It's not about me though, it's about a friend. I'm totally the man.

lyrics

LYRICS:

Oh!
What!
Huh!
Yeah!

I got a blind date with a lady
Never met her, might be crazy
Put a shirt on, can’t look lazy
And I’m ready to go

Got no money in my pocket
Even less in my wallet
But with my credit card and confidence
I’m positive I got this

Had some beers I’m feeling awesome as shit
I’m like a Maverick in a target rich environment

Then I see you
And while I’m not exactly prone to try and get the girls alone
You are in my danger zone

You don’t know how beautiful you are
And I don’t know what to do

(I got you)
You’re right within my sights
Trapped in the headlights
I’m coming at you like a fucking laser beam

(I got you)
You’re making me second guess
The way that I dressed
I just didn’t think I’d fall in love

(I got you)
You’re looking so fine that it’s a crime
I’ll do my time and I won’t be complaining

(I got you)
You’re unsuspecting
I won’t be letting you be forgetting
My skills so smooth
But now I gotta make the first move

I gotta make the first move

The night is ending
Better stop pretending
She asks me upstairs
I know she’s ready to play

But my knees are weak
Palms are sweaty
Balls are dropping like confetti
Taking too long to get ready
And she’s turning away…

I swear I’m usually smooth
But something ruined my groove
I know I got nothing to prove
But girl you got no flaws

I swoop in for the kiss
But i misjudge and I miss
It wasn’t meant to be like this
Oh shit balls

(Going home alone)
It ain’t so bad
But I’m sad that it’s not with her

(Going home alone)
I get less love than Kevin McCallister

(I got you)
You’re right within my sights
Trapped in the headlights
I’m coming at you like a mother fucking laser beam

(I got you)
You’re making me second guess
The way that I dressed
I just didn’t think I’d fall in love

(I got you)
You’re looking so fine that it’s a crime
I’ll do my time and I won’t be complaining

(I got you)
You’re unsuspecting
I won’t be letting you be forgetting
My skills so smooth

But I gotta make the first move
