lyrics

1.1

sure sounds good to me
(Robert Patterson)

Well, I ain’t about to do no pretending;
There ain’t a woman
I would rather have with me.
I know I’ve left in kinda late,
But I’m depending on you honey,
So please just say you will.
It might be best upon this occasion
To forget what your mama has said,
But there’s one thing we gotta get straight
Before it’s too late –
Ain’t it a shame, I don’t know your name.

My, sure sounds good to me;
Please don’t change your mind.
My, sure sounds good to me;
I can’t wait till I know you better.

You can ask for a second opinion,
But I’m sure they’ll say the same thing as me.
This thing just cannot be ignored
And there’s only one cure.
Babe, you got to say you will
I am sorry for being in such a hurry,
I know I could have given you more time,
But now that’s all in the past.
There’s only one thing undecided –
Baby, your place or mine.

My, sure sounds good to me;
Please don’t change your mind.
My, sure sounds good to me;
Please don’t change your mind.
I can’t wait till I know you better.

I am sorry for being in such a hurry;
I know I could have given you more time.
Now that’s all in the past –
There’s only one thing undecided.

My, sure sounds good to me;
Please don’t change your mind.
My, sure sounds good to me;
I can’t wait till I know you better.
